Nicholls will be embarking on her second Paralympic Games when she lines up in Rio in September and there will be high hopes for the British women in the T34 class.
The Coventry athlete was a part of a British one-two-three at the IPC Athletics World Championships last year finishing behind Hannah Cockroft and ahead of rising star Kare Adenegan.
Nicholls pushed Cockroft all the way a year earlier at the IPC Athletics European Championships in the 800m and will have a medal in her sights once again in South America.
