Stefanie Reid won T44 200m bronze at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games before making the switch to long jump.
It was a succesful move for Reid who went on to claim a silver medal from London 2012 and repreated the feat four years later at Rio 2016.
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.
