I was born with a rare condition called lumbar sacral congenital paraplegia which basically means I'm missing the last 7 vertebrae from my spine and I have small crossed legs that look a little like chicken wings.
My parents were told I'd never walk, sit, move or be able to do anything for myself.
yet by 1 I was doing handstands!
10 years old I did my first racing competition
At 16 I made my first senior world championships coming 10th
17 years old I had a kidney removed as it had died
At 18 I made my first Paralympic Games taking a silver medal, just a year later I managed to break the 100m world record.
At 22 I went to my biggest games London 2012 securing the gold medal.
After the great success of a home games, I sadly had some bumps in the road one being in 2013 where I suffered a shoulder injury, I still made the world champ team for that year and getting a silver medal.
But the toughest time I've had to over come was in 2015 where I had a uti that turned to sepsis and I was very close to death, this took me out of the sport for over 9 months, again bounced back to make the Rio 2016 para games and came 6th in the final. Only a year later I found myself at another world championships back on home soil in London once again getting back on the podium securing a silver medal.
