REBECCA Redfern, from Droitwich, has earned a place in ParalympicsGB’s 26-strong para-swimming team heading to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games this summer.

Redfern heads to her third Paralympic Games after winning 100m breaststroke SB13 silver at both the 2016 Rio Games and 2020 Tokyo Games.

The Droitwich swimmer is classified as a visually impaired swimmer and will hope to add to her medal collection in Paris.

Aquatics GB associate performance director, Tim Jones, said: “I’m delighted that ParalympicsGB are now announcing these 26 swimmers to compete in the swimming events in Paris.

“Our athlete cohort has evolved significantly since the Tokyo Games, and with 15 first-time Paralympians on the team, we know we have great potential to be very successful in Paris.

“Amongst our more experienced team members we’ve also seen some positive performance developments across this cycle to build on results from the past.




“We travel to the Games with a high quality group of well-supported swimmers from a diverse range of training locations, which is testament to the hard work and commitment from a large number of clubs and their coaches.

“With the team now unveiled, we will forge ahead in the coming months with the comprehensive plans we have put in place for this important pre-Games preparation phase, and I have every confidence we will arrive in Paris ready to deliver our best possible performance.”


The Paralympic Games take place from August 28 to September 8.
