We are thrilled to announce that Irish Paralympic sprinter Jason Smyth will be Topaz Brand Ambassador for 2012.
Jason who is the current 100m and 200m Paralympic World Champion is aiming to become the first man to compete in the Olympics and Paralympics in the same year.
Smyth, who won double gold in the 100 and 200m at the Beijing Paralympics, is one of the country’s main medal hopes in the London Paralympics which takes place in August. The Derry born sprinter believes has five more chances to cut 0.04 of his best time and make the Olympic A standard of 10.18. Yesterday he was unveiled as the first brand ambassador for Topaz. A short film about Jason will be launched on our website (www.topaz.ie) in the coming days.
