After running on a regular basis when she was at school, Hermitage grew disillusioned with the sport and stopped running. It was until London 2012, when inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games did she decide to pursue a career in athletics while pregnant with her daughter Tilly. Since that moment, the 27 year old has gone on to win seven medals in her two appearances in a British vest.
Hermitage is now also the owner of the 100m, 200m, 400m and 4x100m world records and is sure to be a force to be reckoned with in Rio this summer.
