A leader of Paralympic Team GB and Gold medal prospect at Rio 2016. Despite being told that his disability and illness could kill him, British power lifter Ali has set world records, won World Championships, European titles and Commonwealth medals. Ali is a true champion of adversity.

Ali particularly supports our Ignite Program aimed at giving more young, disabled people, particularly those in disadvantaged areas, access to sport.

Having faced up hill struggles all my life, being born with no legs and then being diagnosed with Chron's disease, seeing the support Access Sport give to your people in disadvantaged areas or suffering hardship is amazing. I'm proud and honoured to support such a forward thinking charity.
