女王的接力棒。戰勝癱瘓的男子將成為持棒人

來自赫特福德郡的48歲的雷-薩利姆在2017年從頸部以下失去了感覺,並被告知他將永遠不會再行走。

經過康復治療後,他重新站了起來,現在參加身體耐力挑戰,為幫助他的慈善機構籌集資金。

"來自波特斯巴的薩利姆先生說:"不久前,我還躺在床上無法動彈,在被告知我將永遠無法行走後,我依賴三個護理人員。

"現在,在我康復後的近五年時間裡,我能夠代表體育救濟組織舉起接力棒。

薩利姆先生在事故發生後第一次恢復了腳趾的一些感覺,他漫長的康復之路讓他與抑鬱症作鬥爭。

今年3月,為了紀念 "紅鼻子日",他在當地體育館參加了131.2公里的四項全能比賽,他的大部分康復過程都是在這裡進行的。

今年夏天,在7月28日在伯明翰舉行的2022年英聯邦運動會之前,將有大約2000名持棒人參加女王接力棒的接力活動,並在英格蘭進行巡迴演出。

接力賽於2021年10月7日在白金漢宮開始,當時女王將她對英聯邦的信息放在接力棒中,接力棒將行駛294天,訪問英聯邦的所有國家和地區。


Rae Saleem, 48, from Hertfordshire, lost feeling from the neck down in 2017 and was told he would never walk again.

After rehabilitation he got back on his feet and now takes on physical endurance challenges to raise money for the charities that helped him.

"Not so long ago I was in a bed not able to move, reliant on three carers after being told I would never walk again," said Mr Saleem, who is from Potters Bar.

"Now, after my recovery and nearly five years on, I am able to represent Sport Relief by lifting the baton.

Mr Saleem first regained some feeling in his toes after his accident and his long road to recovery left him struggling with depression.

In March this year for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day, he took on an 131.2km-quadrathlon in his local gym, where much of his rehabilitation took place.

There will be about 2,000 baton bearers taking part in the Queen's Baton Relay as it travels through England this summer ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham which opens on 28 July.

The relay began on 7 October 2021 at Buckingham Palace, when the Queen placed her message to the Commonwealth in the baton, which is travelling for 294 days, visiting all nations and territories of the Commonwealth.
