Evie used to swim competitively before she took up boccia. She took up the sport by chance, when she tagged along to a regional competition with her brother. She then qualified for nationals, and has never looked back!
Evie has seen great success in the BC4 pairs competition, with early career highlights including a silver medal win at the 2015 BISFed European Team and Pair Championships, where she competed alongside Kieran Steer and Stephen McGuire. On her individual World Championship debut she also beat Dirceu Jose Pinto, Brazilian boccia legend and four-time Paralympic Champion.
Evie combines her training with her university studies, and is currently studying business management at the University Campus Suffolk.
She is set to make her Paralympic debut at Rio 2016.
