Jamieson Leeson was one of two of our recipients to receive the Pathway to Paralympic grant in 2019.
Following on from that grant, Jamieson went on to win the Boccia Australian Nationals, Jamieson Leeson, made it to the final round taking out the Silver with Dan Michel, Rio 2016 Paralympian winning the Gold.
Up until the recent restrictions, Jamieson had been travelling every second week to NSWIS from Dunedoo, NSW.
Jamieson, whose spinal muscular atrophy was diagnosed when she was 18 months old, is not only facing the prospect of competing at her first Paralympic Games next year, but also completing high school. While the Year 12 student at Dunedoo Central School plans to go to university, making the Tokyo team is her top priority right now.
