FORMER ST Cyres pupil Tanni Grey-Thompson has made a date with online history in becoming one of the athletes featured in an online archive.

Paralympic champion Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson has joined others, ranked as Wales’ most successful competitors, sharing their stories with the People’s Collection Wales, as part of the Following the Flame project.

People’s Collection Wales is a contemporary, bilingual website dedicated to sharing the history and experience of Wales and its people with the world.

In their own words, sportspeople, coaches and administrators and their families have shared stories that highlight the very personal highs and lows of a career competing in the limelight.

Rheinallt Ffoster-Jones of People’s Collection Wales said: “Understandably, there’s a huge focus on athletics this year with the UK hosting championships where Welsh sportspeople can thrive. People’s Collection Wales has grown into a fantastic treasure trove of memories and we’d urge others with memories relating to Welsh sporting greats to share their stories, photos and videos with us.”
