Ben Grainger

Ben joined the Microgaming Ambassadors programme in June 2017, lining up alongside Laura Kinley and Joseph Ricciardi. Aged just 14 years old, the rising Para athlete, who is managed by the Isle of Man Swimming Association (IOMSA), has established himself as a promising talent in swimming, having won three gold medals and two silvers at the 2015 British Disability Championships.

Not only is Ben a member of the Microgaming Isle of Man Para Swimming Team, but in 2016 he was also selected to join the British Swimming Para Academy in preparation for the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. Ben was named Disability Sports Person of the Year at the Isle of Man Sports Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
