After competing at the IPC Athletics World Championships on her 16th birthday last year, Maton certainly had a story to tell her school friends. She returned home as a GB international and finished eighth in the long jump on her senior debut at a global competition. It is fair to say, the Devizes-based athlete does not let anything faze her.
After been spotted at a talent ID event a couple of years ago, Maton has seen vast improvements, winning three gold medals at the IWAS Junior Championships in 2014 when she was only 14 years old.
