The guest speaker at the 2015 Bright Stars Award ceremony was Paralympic and Commonwealth guide runner, Mikail Huggins.
Mikail is a guide for 25 year old athlete Libby Clegg who has a very rare condition called Stargardt disease. She has no central vision and only peripheral sight in her left eye, so can only see things at the side. Mikail runs alongside Libby connected by a wrist band.
For the past four years Mikail has been Libby’s eyes as she has taken on some of the top athletes in the world in her events, the T12 100m and 200m, including when she won silver at the 2012 Paralympic Games and gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
