Harriet Lee

Harriet Lee won her first international medal in 2010 when she won the world title in the 100m Breaststroke in Eindhoven and after coming back from illness and injury won bronze in London and this year will be aiming to secure her place at her second Paralympic Games. 

Lee is now based at the National Performance Centre in Manchester and is vying to return to the international stage in the build up to the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

2015 saw two promising swims at the British Para-Swimming International in Glasgow and a finals berth secured in her favoured event the 100m Breaststroke.

Back in 2013 she won her first British Champs medal with a bronze in the MC 100m Breaststroke, this lead to qualification for her second outing at a Worlds. She won silver in the SB9 100m Breaststroke.

Lee had to wait until the last day of the Paralympic games to compete in her event, landing her bronze medal in front of a home crowd in London.

Classified in early 2010 she showed her potential and qualified for her first World Championships in Eindhoven in the summer.
