Dani Caverzaschi joined Runnymede in 2003 and graduated in 2011 when he joined Warwick University to read Economics which he completed with a first class honours degree in 2014. During this time Dani became a wheelchair tennis Paralympian and has represented the Spanish national squad at both London 2012 and Rio 2016. He is now ranked #1 in Spain and #14 worldwide and trains hard every day to make it into the Grand Slam tournaments.
We are very pleased to be sponsoring Dani in his road to Tokyo 2020 and he has become an active part of Runnymede school life, promoting the values that have driven him to his academic and sporting achievements over the years.
Earlier this year Dani Caverzaschi was interviewed by our Junior School pupils where he shared his career and inspiring views on how with efficient time management and hard work, excellence in both academics and sports can be achieved, and how physical activity can help you become a better student.
Dani also took part in this year’s sponsored run and wheeled himself around the track for 8km contributing to raise more than €10.000 for Fundación Deporte Integra who help disabled people through sports.
