Matt Barbet

TV presenter Matt Barbet put in a marathon effort when he ran the 2010 Virgin London Marathon to raise money for Sense.

Matt, previously newsreader on Five, and now GMTV presenter, discovered the challenges that deafblind people can face when he trained with a fellow runner who had sight and hearing loss.

Matt completed the circuit in an impressive 4 hours and 12 minutes, despite being called away from his training schedule on press trips to Haiti and Afghanistan.
