Jan Lishman 1952-2023

UK Deaf Sport is saddened to learn of the loss of Jan Lishman.

Jan was a staunch ally and supporter of deaf sport having been the Secretary and then Chair of UK Deaf Athletics as well as attending European Deaf Athletics Championships.

Our thoughts are with Beth, Jan’s daughter, and her family at this time.
