London 2012 chief medical officer elected as chair of the British Paralympic Association
POSTED 01 Mar 2017 . BY Matthew Campelli
Dr Nick Webborn – who acted as chief medical officer during the London 2012 Paralympics – has been elected as chair of the British Paralympic Association (BPA).

Webborn replaces Tim Reddish, who stepped down from the position following the end of his two-year term.

A “leading sports medicine specialist in the UK”, Webborn specialises in the area of disability and Paralympic sports.

He is a member of the International Paralympic Committee Medical Committee and a member of the World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) Prohibited List Expert Group

As an athlete, Webborn represented Great Britain in wheelchair tennis in 2005.

Webborn said his experience as an athlete and medic gave him the “credibility” to “carry forward the agenda of the BPA.”

“It is a great privilege to be nominated for this position and an even greater honour to be elected by my peers from across the movement as chair,” he added.

Tim Hollingsworth, BPA chief executive, paid tribute to the “fantastic” Reddish and congratulated Webborn on his election.

“He has been an amazing part of the BPA’s history already,” he added.

“I look forward to working closely with him and to the BPA benefitting from his wealth of experience as we look to continue our growth and progression towards Tokyo and beyond.”

Geoff Newton, David Clarke and Forbes Dunlop will join Webborn on the BPA board.
