Two-time Paralympic table tennis medallist Ross Wilson has received backing from B. Braun Medical as he looks to compete at Tokyo 2020.

The 22-year-old lives in Sheffield and trains at the English Institute of Sport in the city, where B. Braun are based.

Wilson won bronze for Britain at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in the men's class 6-8 team events.

He will now serve as an ambassador for the company and work with them on projects.

"I am excited to be working with B. Braun as it is such an ambitious company and does a lot of amazing work within the local community," said Ross.

“I am honoured to represent B. Braun as a Paralympic medallist and can't wait to get involved with more of their projects."

Ross won the national under-12 and under-14 doubles table tennis titles before being diagnosed with multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, a genetic condition that affects bone growth.

He was ranked as the world number two in the men's class 8 singles, before being sidelined for two years with injury.

After recovering, he bounced back to earn selection for Rio 2016.

Hans Hux, group chief executive of B. Braun in the UK, hailed Ross' determination and said he is a superb role model for young athletes.

"B. Braun are very proud to support Ross and thrilled to welcome him at the company," he said.

"His focus, determination and commitment to his sport make him an inspirational role model, particularly to those involved in our B. Healthy-B. Braun initiative which is all about getting young people to be more active by engaging them in activities that make exercise fun."

In his ambassador role, Ross will be involved in a three-year programme of activities which will include delivering motivational talks to B. Braun staff, blogging and attending company events.

He will also promote inclusive sport by getting involved with the B. Healthy-B. Braun schools programme.

The programme aims to improve the health and wellbeing of young people in the region.

He joins Paralympic cyclist Karen Darke, a silver medallist at London 2012, as an ambassador for the organisation.
