Martine Wright – Inspirational Speaker, Paralympian and 7/7 Survivor

Martine Wright MBE is a Paralympian and inspirational and motivational speaker, who lost both legs in the Circle line bombing during the 2005 terrorist attacks in London.

The day after London had won the Olympic Games Bid, Martine was on the Circle Line Tube train that was targeted by a suicide bomber. Sat three feet away from the bomber, Martine was trapped for over an hour, losing 80% of her blood supply as well as both legs above the knees.

Remarkably she survived and after a year of rehab and learning to walk on prosthetics, she slowly rebuilt her life.

Living life to the full, Martine not only got married but learned to skydive, got her pilots license and
became captain of the British Paralympic Sitting volleyball team, and competing for Great Britain at the London 2012 Paralympics

An inspirational and motivational speaker, Martine has developed a television career presenting sporting events on the BBC and Channel 4, including the Paralympics and Invictus Games, and was a roving reporter at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

She was the Helen Rollason award winner at Sports Personality of the Year 2012 and was awarded an MBE for her services to sport and work as a role model for amputee athletes.
