The GB Women’s co-captain, 22-year-old Sophie Carrigill continues to go from strength to strength in her rapid rise through the sport.
A bronze medallist on her major debut at the 2013 European Championships in Frankfurt, Germany, the following year saw Sophie receive the honour of being named the GB Women’s Captain for the 2014 World Championships in Canada, where she led the team to their highest ever finish of 5th place.
In 2015, Sophie then captained the GB Women to another European bronze medal and a qualification place for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
In addition to her senior international success, Sophie also played an invaluable role in the GB Women’s U25 Team becoming crowned the 2015 World Champions in Beijing, China – building upon two European U25 Silver Medals (2013, 2014).
Sophie also experienced London 2012 as part of ParalympicsGB’s Paralympic Inspiration Programme while she also celebrated the home Games as an Olympic Torch Bearer.
Sophie manages her sporting career alongside her studies and is currently in the final year of her Sports Psychology degree at the University of Worcester.
