Jordan Lee

His first sporting passion and talent was basketball and he made a national U15 development squad before he switched sports to pull on the Irish vest at high jump. The 19-year-old from Killarney is already ranked number two in the world in his T47 event, and made his debut at the World Para-Athletics Championships which take place in Dubai in November 2019

He’s also the first to confess that he knew nothing about para-sport until 2016, when he attended the Cara National Seminar for Inclusion. Jason Smyth, the fastest Paralympian on the planet, was among the speakers and the Derry superstar encouraged Jordan to go to Paralympics Ireland’s talent ID trials.
