Tanni Grey-Thompson remembers carrying the Welsh flag at the 2002 Commonwealth Games

The Jubilee Time Capsule team recently interviewed Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson for JTC Sports Month.

Tanni is a Welsh Paralympic athlete, TV presenter and life peer in the House of Lords, which is where the JTC caught up with her.

When asked to name her memorable day, Tanni chose the 25th July 2002; the date of the Manchester Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony where she carried the Welsh flag.

Tanni explains why this moment was important to her, how it put disability sport on the map, and how the Commonwealth Games have always been “at the forefront of encouraging diversity and difference”.
