Para-Triathlete

Lauren was born missing her lower right arm, however this has challenged Lauren to be the best she can be, and she relishes the chance to overcome barriers. She has competed at two Paralympic Games as a swimmer. She has since specialised in Paratriathlon and will represent Team GB in the Sports inaugural entry to the Paralympic Games.

Lauren’s passion for swimming started at just 4 years and she represented Team GB just 11 years later in her first Paralympic games as a swimmer aged just 15.

Lauren was encouraged to switch to Triathlon by her Uncle who saw her potential to achieve in all 3 sports. She entered her first triathlon, the British Championships, in 2011 and finished second. Lauren has since gone on to achieve great things and is currently unbeaten in 13 consecutive races. She is now coached by former ITU World Champion Sam Warriner

In her time away from being a world class athlete Lauren is studying for her Masters in Business after gaining her degree in Psychology. She has a love for baking and goes Salsa dancing twice a week.
