Ellie Robinson Cut Out

Ellie Robinson MBE had a stand out 2016 as she became Paralympic Champion during her debut season on the international stage after she took gold in the Women's S6 50m Butterfly and multiple medals at the IPC European Champs.

Rio 2016 proved to be a highly successful first games for Robinson after she medalled in two of her four events, claiming gold and bronze.

After impressing in selection at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in the April of 2016, Ellie made her major debut for Great Britain at the 2016 IPC Swimming European Championships in Funchal, where she won three bronze and one silver medal in her first international meet.

Ellie learnt to swim when she was four years old and was talent-spotted back in July 2012. She was inspired by watching her now-teammate Ellie Simmonds at London 2012, and continued to progress at Northampton Swimming Club.

After a couple of years out due to a hip injury, Ellie returned to training in 2013 and started her recovery.
