Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?
She got into Para athletics in 2018, after recovering from her late 2017 accident.
Why this sport?
During her rehabilitation, doctors told her about Para sport. "I was airlifted to Sydney [after the accident], in hospital in intensive care, and I thought my life was kind of over. And that's when I found my love for athletics, through a doctor who told me it was still possible [to be involved in sports]."
