Rebecca started swimming through swimming lessons, wanting to be like her older brother.
She had been swimming competitively for seven years before she was selected to compete at her first Paralympic Games. She set a world record time in the 100m breaststroke SB13 at the 2016 British Para-Swimming International Meet to impress selectors.
A little over a week later, she made her major international debut at the 2016 IPC Swimming European Championships where she claimed an individual silver medal in the 100m breaststroke SB13.
