Anthony Gotts Wheelchair LEJOG

900 mile push from Lands End to John O’Groats in an attempt to achieve a Guinness World Record.

32-year-old Anthony Gotts is the first person in history to attempt the gruelling journey from Cornwall to Scotland in a manual wheelchair, using arm power alone.

In order to finish the journey in record time he will need to push around 33 miles per day without any rest day for four weeks, which equates to over one marathon a day.

Anthony Gotts was an able-bodied athlete until he tore muscles and broke his pelvis in a freak long jumping accident. He had been looking to make the trials for the London Olympics, but gradually lost the use of both legs.

Despite his injuries, he has competed in the World Marathon Championships in London and in several races across Europe with more determination than ever before. He said: “I believe everyone on the planet can do extraordinary things - if they work hard and it means enough to them they can do something amazing.
