TCL has named Paralympian swimmer Brock Whiston as its new Brand Ambassador, in time for the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic games.

The 27-year-old swimmer will be competing in the tournament in Paris after qualifying in May.

Diagnosed with left-sided hemiplegia at 17, Whiston overcame barriers and redefined her achievements using swimming as therapy. As a result, she has adapted her techniques to maximise her strengths, winning six gold medals and becoming a world champion.
