Since making her international debut in 2012 at the IPC Athletics European Championships in Stadskanaal, the Netherlands, the blade runner has gone on to win one Paralympic gold, four world titles and four European crowns.

At Rio 2016 she is aiming for gold in the 100m and 200m, events she holds the T43 world records in. She may be fast, but what is here music taste like?
