Other information
CLASSIFICATION
In 2012 was she assigned to the S8, SB7 and SM8 impairment classification. However, due to her progressive impairment the International Paralympic Committee [IPC] decided that her classification needed to be assessed, resulting in her receiving a two-month suspension from competition in February 2015 to allow for the assessment. She was cleared to compete in the S8 and SM8 class at the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland. (swim4lifemagazine.it, 11 Jun 2015; paralympic.org, 15 Jul 2015)
