Bailey Matthews (born 2006) is a British schoolboy, from Worksop, who has won awards for his sporting achievements in the face of his cerebral palsy. These include completing his first junior triathlon (a 100 m (110 yd) swim, then a 4 km (2.5 mi) bike ride, ending with a 1.3 km (0.81 mi) run), at Castle Howard in July 2015, after throwing away his walking frame to complete the last 18 metres (20 yd) of the final section on his own, despite stumbling twice. A video of the moment, captured by a spectator, went viral, being viewed more than 27 million times on Facebook.
Bailey Matthews received a Pride of Britain Award and numerous other awards, and in December the same year, he was presented with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award at a ceremony in Belfast.
