Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight (; also referred to informally as The Island or abbreviated to IoW) is a county and the largest and second-most populous island in England. It is in the English Channel, between 2 and 5 miles off the coast of Hampshire, separated by the Solent. The island has resorts that have been holiday destinations since Victorian times, and is known for its mild climate, coastal scenery, and verdant landscape of fields, downland and chines. The island is designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The island has been home to the poets Swinburne and Tennyson and to Queen Victoria, who built her much-loved summer residence and final home Osborne House at East Cowes. It has a maritime and industrial tradition including boat-building, sail-making, the manufacture of flying boats, the hovercraft, and Britain's space rockets. The island hosts annual music festivals including the Isle of Wight Festival, which in 1970 was the largest rock music event ever held. It has well-conserved wildlife and some of the richest cliffs and quarries for dinosaur fossils in Europe.

The isle was owned by a Norman family until 1293 and was earlier a kingdom in its own right. In common with the Crown dependencies, the British Crown was then represented on the island by the Governor of the Isle of Wight until 1995. The island has played an important part in the defence of the ports of Southampton and Portsmouth, and been near the front-line of conflicts through the ages, including the Spanish Armada and the Battle of Britain. Rural for most of its history, its Victorian fashionability and the growing affordability of holidays led to significant urban development during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Historically part of Hampshire, the island became a separate administrative county in 1890. It continued to share the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire until 1974, when it was made its own ceremonial county. Apart from a shared police force, there is now no administrative link with Hampshire, although a combined local authority with Portsmouth and Southampton was considered, this is now unlikely to proceed.The quickest public transport link to the mainland is the hovercraft from Ryde to Southsea; three vehicle ferry and two catamaran services cross the Solent to Southampton, Lymington and Portsmouth.

He was a repeat member of the team at the 2016 Summer Paralympics.Tscherniawsky was born in Boston, Lincolnshire in England in 1992. Tscherniawsky, who has cerebral palsy, took up wheelchair basketball at the age of eleven. After visiting Stoke Mandeville at the age of 16, he became part of the GB development squad, focusing on power lifting. He eventually gravitated towards the throwing events, specialising in the shot put and discus. He began competing at the age of 17.

In 2009, he competed in both shot put and discus, but by 2010 he dropped the shot to concentrate of discus alone. His personal best in the discus in 2009 was a throw of 21.34m at a meet in Nottingham in September. A year later, back at Nottingham, Tscherniawsky recorded a throw of 27.65 in the discus, his seventh personal best of the year. In 2011, he was selected as part of the Great Britain team to attend the 2011 IPC Athletics World Championships in New Zealand. Tscherniawsky threw 27.52 to finish seventh. Three months later, at the Junior World Championship in Dubai, he threw a personal best of 28.06 to take first place. Before the end of the year Tscherniawsky had improved his discus further, posting a distance of 29.57, which gave him the gold at the England Senior Championships.In 2012, Tscherniawsky broke the 30 metre mark in two competitions; 30.23 at the National Athletics Championships in Dublin, and then improved that again in July with a personal best of 30.99 at the BWAA Grand Prix at Stoke Mandeville. His performance in the meets leading up to the 2012 Summer Paralympics saw him qualify for the Great Britain team at the Games in London, competing in the F32-34 discus category. At the Paralympic Games, his best throw of 29.05m equated to 925 points, which saw him finish in 10th place.

The next year, Tscherniawsky improved on his personal best in the discus with a distance of 31.51 at the Cheshire & Manchester County Championships in May. In June, he represented Great Britain at the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships, held in Lyon. He entered two events, the shot put and discus throw.

Ryde

Ryde is an English seaside town and civil parish on the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight, with a population of 32,072 at the 2011 Census. It grew in size as a seaside resort after the villages of Upper Ryde and Lower Ryde were merged in the 19th century. The influence of this era is clearly visible in the town's central and seafront architecture. As a resort Ryde is noted for its expansive sands revealed at low tide, making the listed pier necessary on the wide beach for a regular passenger ferry service. The pier is the fourth longest in the United Kingdom, as well as the oldest.
