Paralympic Judoka

Paralympic Judoka, Jack Hodgson, was born with Usher syndrome – a rare hereditary condition which has left Jack profoundly deaf for most of his life. Since the age of 12 has had tunnel vision the size of a 5p piece. However, now a Worlds silver medalist and paralympian, Jack is training full time at the British Judo Centre of Excellence alongside Judokas from the Olympic and Paralympic programs. Recently, Jack has graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a degree in Sports Coaching Practice. Despite the challenges Jack faces with his disability he has been able to achieve these goals alongside his commitments as a full time athlete.
