Ce vei face

Joined by my Sports Psychologist, Dr. Emma Kavanagh, we’ll discuss the importance of sports psychology from an athlete and practitioner’s perspective. Exploring the challenges and transitions I have faced throughout my career, we’ll also look specifically at the effort to cope with COVID-19 as a Paralympic athlete and what a return to competition looks like now.

I will share my journey, starting from the moment when I realised that I was never going to walk again to when I qualified for my first Paralympic Games in Beijing 2008 and on to London 2012—where I made history by becoming one of the first women to win a medal in wheelchair tennis for Great Britain.

There have been lots of ups and downs along the way and there will always be setbacks in life, but I believe it’s how you respond to those challenges that counts. With this experience, I hope to inspire people to strive for success no matter what life throws at them so they can simply work at being the best version of themselves.

Also, I hope this is interactive! Throughout the experience, there will be lots of opportunities for questions. Don’t be afraid to ask me anything.

Proceeds from this experience go towards supporting Back Up Trust, a non-profit organisation that helps people, like me, who have been affected by a spinal cord injury.

Hello! I'm Lucy Shuker and I'm a Double Paralympic Bronze Medallist in Wheelchair Tennis.

I started playing wheelchair tennis following a motorbike accident in 2001, which left me paralysed from the chest down. I have since gone on to enjoy a career that has spanned over 18 years, including three Paralympic Games, career best rankings of World No.5 in Singles and World No.3 in Doubles, and over 100 International titles.

I have faced many challenges in my career, like being told that I couldn’t compete with the best because of my injury, but a strong mindset has helped me overcome all of them. Since my accident, I have managed to carve out my own journey to success that I know I can feel very proud of.

It was a real privilege to hear Lucy's personal experience and story. She spoke well and it felt like an exclusive, intimate experience; like going out for dinner with Lucy. To also have the more scientific and professional perspective from Emma was brilliant as she really helped us all to understand the psychology of learning to adapt.

Lucy's experience was very inspiring and impressive to learn more about the pyscology behind her resilience as a world class athlete. I thought it was a great touch including her with her sport's pycologist to explain more about how they work together. Great experience and I would highly recommend it!

Even if you’ve never seen wheelchair tennis, I’d warmly recommend this experience for really getting behind the psychology of being a world class competitor. I loved the interaction between Lucy and sports psychologist, Emma, in terms of hearing Lucy’s story and achievement but also getting the perspective of what type of mindset it takes. Both are great at taking questions and super engaging.
