In this programme Sue Gilroy explains how she's overcome prejudice and disease to be both a teacher and a sports champion.
Gilroy is a wheelchair user who is proving that there is nothing she can't do in front of a classroom or behind a table tennis table. As a Year 3 teacher at Shawlands Primary School, Barnsley, she specialises in science and music, adapting her teaching methods to suit her abilities and her wheelchair.
As a table tennis player she's won the Commonwealth gold medal twice and the British title nine times, in addition to a string of European titles.
