WATCH: Paralympic Champ Jonnie Peacock Kicks Out The Jams On ‘Strictly Come Dancing’

Jonnie Peacock ossur Flex Run With Nike Sole

British Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock is a true example of “Life Without Limitations” - having streamlined his own body into a medal winning machine and as of recently also becomming a dancing sensation against the odds.

Competing as a sprint runner, Peacock has represented Great Britain at two Olympics to date - sprinting to victory in both the 2012 London games and the 2016 Rio games. He has also won gold at the IPC world championships and the IPC European championships in 2013 and 2017, and 2014 and 2016 respectively - scoring golds at all events in the 100 meters.

Peacock contracted meningitis when he was five-years-old and lost his right leg as a consequence of the disease - undergoing an amputation below the knee.

On 21 August 2017 Peacock was confirmed as a contestant on series 15 of the BBC programme Strictly Come Dancing (DSTV Channel 120), becoming the first amputee paralympian to compete on the show. Performing a tricky jive to Chuck Berry’s classic “Johnny B Goode” in the video-clip below, Jonnie revealed that he was wearing his brand new blade – the Flex-Run with Nike Sole by Össur – a Prosthetic Solution he specifically got for the competition.
