World Transplant Games
Our congratulations also go out to Team GB at the 2017 World Transplant Games in Malaga, where Team GB finished top of the medals table with an outstanding tally of 166 Gold medals, 90 Silver medals and 104 Bronze medals. Check out the full results here.
One of the stand out performances came from Cardiff’s Emma Wiltshire. In July 2014, Emma suffered acute liver failure while working in Portugal. She went into a coma, to wake up a week later to be told she’d a liver transplant. A year later, Emma went onto compete for Team GB at the 2015 World Transplant Games in Argentina and won an amazing six Gold medals and set multiple World Records.
Emma has also gone onto compete at the 2017 World Transplant Games in Malaga winning four Gold medals and two Silver medals. To find out more, follow Emma’s blog.
Emma’s story has hit the National press too! To find out more, follow the link.
