Jack Eyers, having a disability doesn’t need to hold you back

Jack Eyers is a double World Champion after a huge couple of years racing the men’s VL3 200m.
His most recent success was in Halifax, Canada, after an incredible run in an exhilarating final saw him obtain the World title for a second time running, holding off the fight from the rest of the field to get ahead by just 0.16 seconds.

2021 saw Jack claim his first World title in Copenhagen, with Jack producing his trademark strong second half of the race to claw back the advantage and pip his British teammate Stu Wood on the line and claim the world crown. Jack concluded the 2022 season with a European best time as he powered to gold in Munich and cap off a fantastic year. In 2018, his first international season racing in canoeing, Jack won both European and World Championships bronze medals in the V1 200m VL3 class, a hugely impressive achievement. Fun fact about Jack aside from the sport, he became the first amputee to be crowned Mr England back in 2017.
Jack joined the Podium Potential Programme in 2018 having first began his sporting career in wheelchair basketball. He also competed in wheelchair racing, athletics, rowing and swimming but now believes he has found his sporting home in canoeing.

In fact, he has tried special gloves and some companies have even offered to make him a prosthesis with 3D printers. But Shaquem Griffin has ruled out everything.
