Sammi Kinghorn

We supported World Champion Sammi on her journey from 17-year-old novice to World Champion


When Samantha 'Sammi' Kinghorn lined up for the final of the T54 1500m wheelchair race at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the roars of Team HM almost matched those of the Hampden crowd.

As Legal Advisers to Glasgow 2014, watching her compete in such an arena and defy the odds to finish fifth in her first major international competition was the highlight of the Games for us.

Sammi was just 18 when she competed at Glasgow 2014. In the lead up to that event and over the next four years, Harper Macleod supported Sammi as she grew to become Britain's fastest ever female wheelchair racer, a Paralympian, a World Record holder and a double World Champion. 

In the summer of 2017, Sammi achieved one of her lifetime ambitions when she completed an amazing sprint double over 100m & 200m at the World Para Athletics Championships in London. She broke her own 200m world record in the final, and went on to add a bronze medal in the 400m for good measure. 

London was the culmination of a meteoric rise in the sport, and announced her to the Great British public as one of our new athletics superstars.

It was a fantastic journey and we were honoured to play a small part in helping Sammi make her dreams a reality.
