Tommy Frank

I've really enjoyed filming a story with boxer Tommy Frank from Sheffield who's hoping to inspire others by his success in the ring. The Super flyweight was born with a hole in his heart but that hasn't stopped him becoming a professional boxer. Tommy is an ambassador for Yorkshire-based national charity Heart Research UK and wants others to set themselves ambitious targets like he has. I filmed with him at his gym and with his lovely parents who had to go through the trauma of seeing their son have to go through open-heart surgery as a child.

  1. I wouldn't have thought boxing was a great sport but others have also told me how inspiring it is.
