After the successful launch of our Team GB Medallists Map we are pleased to offer our Paralympics GB Medallists Map.

Limited to 1000 individually numbered prints

The map highlights London 2012 Paralympic gold medallists, and ‘star’ Paralympians who have won four or more medals in their careers. The designers also made an effort to keep siblings and spouses as close to each other on the map as possible.

The ParalympicsGB Medallists Map takes the central London section of the iconic Tube Map and replaces the station names with the names of ParalympicsGB medal winners.

The map has been created by sports journalists Alex Trickett and David Brooks, and highlights the achievements of all the 97 athletes and five horses that contributed to the ParalympicsGB medal haul.

Athletes from different sporting disciplines are grouped on different lines, with Athletics taking pride of place on the Circle line. However ParalympicsGB were so successful in sports such as cycling and swimming that the athletes had to be spread across multiple lines. For example, medal-winning Paralympic cyclists represent the Central and Hammersmith & City lines.

Sarah Storey, multiple gold medal winner, and one of Great Britain's most decorated female Paralympians, is given the well-deserved honour of representing the gateway to the Olympic Park, Stratford station. Swimming sensation Eleanor Simmonds is placed at another key entry-point to London 2012, West Ham. Appropriately, Wimbledon station is named after Paralympic tennis veteran, Peter Norfolk.
