Born with congenital limb deficiency, Elizabeth’s life prospects seemed bleak, but with parents who decided to raise her to be as independent as possible, Elizabeth grew up with a rock solid self-belief and positive attitude to go on and achieve the seemingly impossible.
At the age of 13 she set the massive goal to swim at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games. 3 years later, she competed at her first Paralympic Games in Atlanta, USA, as a member of the Australian National Swim team.
During her Paralympic career, Elizabeth held world records for Butterfly, won countless races, and won three Paralympic Medals: One silver and two bronze.
Since retiring from swimming Elizabeth has gained a 1st class Honours and a Masters degree in Fine Art, has moved to the UK from Australia, started her own business, and now spends her days inspiring others to achieve the seemingly impossible. Elizabeth believes that everything is possible if you’re prepared to bring the right attitude, plan your goal journey and also develop an unreserved self-belief if what you can achieve.
Elizabeth has experience of talking to the Press/Media and has been featured in a number of articles and interviews (see below).
