Top Jockey WT1D gets his license

The jockey has been receiving specialist medical advice since he was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes in 2005, but he chose not to disclose the information to the BHA, believing it would have been "professional suicide".



Sir Steven Redgrave is our inspiration 

 It is not possible to overstate his contribution to improving the aspiration and well being of people with T1DM. He tells us- "When I was first diagnosed in 1997 my immediate reaction was that I would have to stop training – I’m glad to be able to say I was wrong – it is possible to train at a high level as a diabetic and succeed" Find out how he managed his diabetes to win his historic 5th Gold
