European, World & Paralympic Champion Andy Lewis MBE
Andy Lewis is a GB Paratriathlete and competes as a through-knee amputee.
Andy lost his leg at just 16 years after a serious motorcycle accident. Instead of giving up after this life changing incident he has worked relentlessly to challenge himself and to stay fit and focused and become the best he can be.
For those of you new to Andy’s sport, he couldn’t have picked a harder event to compete in. Not only do you swim and bike you also run, it’s a gruelling event especially for through-knee amputees as you also need to take into account the transitions from swim to bike and bike to run which are often referred to as the fourth discipline.
Andy Lewis has not only achieved European and World Athlete status in the short time that he has competed as a Paratriathlete, but can now proudly add Paralympics Gold Medallist to his ever-expanding repertoire.
Some of Andy’s recent records; 4 X Triathlon Gold Medallist, 3 X Triathlon Silver Medallist, 2 X Triathlon Bronze Medallist, British Champion 2015, World Champion 2016, European Champion 2016 and Rio 2016 Paralympics GOLD Medallist.
