David Roberts named SportsAid Legend of 2010

29 November 2010

Eleven-time Paralympic champion David Roberts CBE added another trophy to his cabinet after collecting the SportsAid Legends Award for 2010.

The award from financial support charity SportsAid recognises alumni who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and determination to achieve great things in their sport.

And in receiving the commendation, Roberts – who won seven medals at his first Paralympic Games in Sydney in 2000 – joined an illustrious roster of previous winners including Peter Nicol MBE, Bradley Wiggins CBE and Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson.

But while the Welsh swimmer thanked SportsAid for the recognition of his achievement, he insisted he had no intention of slowing down ahead of London 2012.

"I am very fortunate, I love what I do," David said at the event. "And that still keeps me training six days a week, out of bed at four in the morning, because thanks to sport I have been able to see and experience some amazing things.

"Although legends are usually retired, there's still life in me yet. London will be my fourth and final Games so this next two years is all about one more gold medal."
