Lydia Ingman

I’m Lydia Ingman from Chesterfield! I’m a See my Voice project Officer at UK Deaf Sport and I also take lead in the Athlete Leadership group. I am really excited to be working in an area that I feel so passionately about! My role will be diverse across different areas, helping me to understand the behind the scenes of the organisation. The role will also support my studies of Sport and Exercise Science at Manchester Metropolitan University.

A little about me: I was born deaf to a hearing family. From a young age, I learnt to sign and lip read which became my main form of communication until having a cochlear implant at aged 3. My main sport is Golf and is a big part of my life. My greatest achievement is winning the World Deaf Golf Championships 2016 in Copenhagen and winning European Deaf Golf Championships 2017 in England.
