Swimming

I have been swimming since I was a child and competing since 2000.  Swimming for me was a way to get my arms and legs moving.

Since then I have won 3 gold Paralympic Medals, 1 silver Paralympic Medals and 6 Paralympic Bronze Medals over 5 consecutive Paralympics, held 10 World Records, competed in 6 World Championships (winning 3 gold, 8 silver and 5 bronze medals).

Competing at home at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in 2018, winning Gold in S7 50 Freestyle.
