Tokyo 2020 will be Longhorne’s debut Paralympic appearance, but he actually holds a connection to a previous Games having carried the Olympic torch during the relay for London 2012.
After contracting Meningitis as a nine month old, septicaemia led to amputations of Lyndon's right leg above the knee, his left leg below the knee, his right hand and the fingertips on his left.
It was his grandfather who first introduced to him pool swimming at the age of one, and in 2011 at the age of fifteen, Lyndon was competing at his first national championships. The Derwentside SC swimmer now boasts eight British Para-Swimming long course records after a series of fast swims in 2021 - those performances ultimately secured his nomination for a first international appearance for Great Britain at this summers Tokyo Paralympics.
