Samatha Kinghorn

Samatha is one of Scotland’s leading wheelchair racers and the fastest ever British female over all her main events.

"I come from Gordon, in the Scottish Borders. I took up wheelchair racing in 2011, following an accident on the farm in the Scottish Borders where my family live when I was 14 years old. The accident left me unable to walk, but after being introduced to the sport of wheelchair racing I haven't looked back.

"I became a double World Champion at the London 2017 World Championships. I'm also lucky enough to be a World Record holder over 200m, a multiple European record holder and, following my debut at Rio 2016, a Paralympian - all in the T53 classification."
