Paralympic star Ben Quilter visited the American Express Community Stadium to launch a scheme to help disabled youngsters.
Brighton-born Ben, who won bronze at the Paralympic Games in judo, was promoting i-go, a scheme to improve access to leisure activities for children and young people with disabilities and special needs.
The European and Double World Champion judoka, who is visually impaired after developing Stargardt disease, was at the Amex stadium on Thursday.
The scheme allows members up to the age of 25 to enjoy offers at attractions and facilities across the county.
It is being run by East Sussex County Council in partnership with Rockinghorse Children’s Charity and has received funding from the Big Lottery Fund.
Nineteen leisure facilities across Brighton & Hove and East Sussex have signed up.
