Debbie O'Connelllincoln Leichtathletik, Behindertensport
Just 4 years into the sport after being injured while serving in the British Army, already I have competed in the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, achieving 2 silver medals.
I am currently number 1 in the UK for my primary distance of 400m and would sit number 2 in Europe when classified internationally in 2023.
I have finished work to focus on achieving Paris Paralympics 2024, I have a professional coach as well as a club coach and train at Loughborough with Paralympic athletes.
During my time with the Invictus Games I gained local and national recognition, I have maintained those links and give regular interviews on BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
