World and Paralympic wheelchair racing champion Hannah Cockroft MBE will talk about her sporting success in a special Twitter Q&A.

Fresh from winning gold in the T34 100m, 400m and 800m at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, Hannah, from Halifax, will be online and answering questions on the @IrwinMitchell Twitter account.

The event organised by the law firm, which sponsors Hannah, is being held as part of its Don’t Quit Do It initiative, which promotes the positive impact that disability sport has on many lives and how it helps people to overcome serious injuries.

Among the issues set to be covered are the former Trinity Academy pupil’s love of sport and how her passion for racing has helped her overcome the challenges she has faced through her life.

Andrea Burke, a partner and serious injury expert at Irwin Mitchell, said: “Hannah is massive inspiration to so many people with what she has already achieved, yet she maintains an impressive focus of going even further with Rio approaching.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about her incredible story and also how sport has helped her to overcome the challenges she has faced in her life.

“We are delighted that she is able to take time out of her busy schedule to spend some time with us and we would urge everyone with an interest in sport to get online and follow the chat.”

Follow the live chat on Thursday, November 12 between 2pm and 3pm either on the @IrwinMitchell Twitter account or via the #dontquitdoit hashtag.
