In respect of Halifax Paralympian Hannah Cockroft and her 2 gold medals.
Let’s all praise Hannah Cockroft,
Please let me state the facts,
She has a will of steel, a gorgeous smile
And comes from Halifax.
Through adversity she`s triumphed,
Never seems to wear a frown,
Our Paralympic champ returned
Two gold`s to our home town
There`s a really special feeling
When you start to watch the race,
That girl the camera`s focused on
Is a local friendly face
I know we`ve had Mo Farah
And cyclist Bradley Wiggins flew,
Jess Ennis stole the nation’s heart
Greg Rutherford did well too
But with Hannah it’s just different,
She belongs to me and you,
Born and raised in Halifax,
Represents her nation too.
So it`s Hannah Cockroft we salute
And her Olympic spirit,
This town will always strive for gold
As long as she is in it!!
My tribute to a great girl and wonderful athlete..well done Hannah.
Regards, Steve Bennett.
