James Pendleton to help Wandsworth athlete fulfilling his Olympic dream

Wandsworth born and bred Table Tennis champion Aaron Mckibbin is set for great things: following a Bronze medal victory in the London 2012 Paralympic Games, he is now ranked 14th in the world and aims to reach the lower single digits by the next Games in 2016.  Aaron is a brilliant example of an inspirational Wandsworth resident and soon you will be able to catch up with his training news on a regular basis thanks to James Pendleton Estate Agents’ dedicated blog.

Born with bilateral talipes which affects his ankle mobility, Aaron’s skill, drive and sheer hard work have seen him transform from school lunchtime table tennis player to consummate professional in a few short years.  He describes his experience at the 2012 Games as perhaps the most incredible experience of his life:

“Usually we play in front of audiences of a few hundred people: I was one of the first to play at London 2012 and when my name was called thousands of people stood up and cheered for me as a member of the GB team.  I’ve never experienced anything like it”

The London Games redefined standards of Paralympic media coverage and increased global audience figures by a staggering 1 billion.  Suffice it to say that the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games have a lot to live up to, and that the Paralympics, and Aaron, had better get used to taking centre stage.

James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Wandsworth connections make the company the ideal sponsors for this local figurehead, and he can now be seen sporting James Pendleton branded kit at tournaments across the UK.  The company’s dedicated blog will feature videos, clippings and interviews with Aaron as he journeys toward Rio.

James Pendleton Estate Agents are absolutely thrilled to be helping a local talent with high Olympic hopes.
