Rebecca Redfern - 2018 Headshot

Rebecca Redfern has won medals on the Paralympic and European stages and will go in search of medals again at this summer's European Championships.

Having missed out on the opportunity to race at her first World Championships in Mexico in 2017 due to the earthquake, she headed to Dublin for the 2018 European Championships and reached the finals of the S13 50m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke events and finished fifth and sixth respectively.

Redfern set a new World record in the SB13 100m Breaststroke at the 2016 British Para-Swimming International Meet to secure her place on the Brazil-bound ParalympicsGB team. She then went on to make her first overseas team for the IPC European Championships where she won silver in the 100m Breaststroke.

Four months later she returned to the podium in Rio where she collected a Paralympic silver also in the SB13 100m Breaststroke.
