Stef Reid

Stef is a double Paralympic Games medallist winning silver in the T44 long jump in 2012 after sprint success in 2008. She has been a five-time world record holder in her long jump event but injuries have seen her miss the last two major championships in Doha and Grosseto.

Stef was born in New Zealand to a Scottish father and English mother, grew up in Toronto, and moved to Dallas, Texas before settling back in the UK in 2010. With an honours degree in Biochemistry, a fashion model and keen public speaker, Reid is a multi-talented individual. She is also married to Paralympic medallist Brent Lakatos of Canada so they are regarded as one of the golden couples of track and field.
