Harriet Lee won ParalympicsGB’s third swimming medal of Rio 2016 as she finished second in the 100m breaststroke S9 final, one place better than the bronze she won at London 2012.

“I have such amazing support back home and Team Lee have been phenomenal"  Harriet Lee

Having already seen Ollie Hynd and Stephanie Millward claim medals on the opening day, Cambourne’s Lee came home in a time of 1:16.87 to finish just over a second behind the Netherlands’ Lisa Kruger.

She said:

“I just wanted to get out there. The last four years have been a struggle so to get down to this point and swim that time in that race, I feel so happy.

“I have such amazing support back home and Team Lee have been phenomenal. It is not just me, there is a network behind me that have dragged me through some difficult times so it is great to be able to share it with them.”
