Four-time ITU World Champion Faye got into triathlon when a friend challenged her to do the run section as part of a triathlon relay. She did her first triathlon in 2009. Although not from a specifically sporting background, Faye has taken part in a wide variety of sports and was working as a fitness instructor when she was first introduced to triathlon.
Faye competes in the PT4 category for athletes with less severe arm and leg impairments. At the ITU World Championships in 2014 Faye was part of a British 1-2-3 on the podium with team-mates Lauren Steadman and Clare Cunningham.
She made her Paralympic debut at Rio 2016, narrowly missing out on a podium place in the women's PT4 event with a fourth place finish.
Faye is also a qualified physiotherapist, having graduated from the University of Brighton in 2013.
