Help for Heroes beneficiary and three-times silver
medal winner at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Jon-Allan Butterworth, 28, is
competing in the second series of Channel 4’s celebrity show ‘The Jump’.
Coming to Channel 4 in early February, viewers will
see track cyclist Butterworth, who lives in Manchester, take on some of the
most challenging winter sports, using his experiences in the RAF and as an
athlete to ensure he is leading contender to be crowned champion of ‘The Jump’ 2015.
Jon-Allan said: “I
wanted to try all these amazing winter sports, to be the first above elbow
amputee to do bobsleigh and skeleton and to inspire other injured veterans out
there. My aim is also to use the show to get fit after an operation that I had
in September to enable me to return to cycling with a base level of fitness and
a good weight to work with.”
Jump will air on Channel 4 on 1st February 2015 at 7pm.
