Suzanna Hext

Suzanna Hext burst onto the scene of British Para Swimming in 2019, making a name for herself as a freestyle specialist. With international pedigree also in the sport of Dressage, Suzanna has ambitions to represent Team GB in both sports at Tokyo 2020.

Triple European Para dressage triple gold medallist Suzanna Hext only turned her attention to swimming in 2017, and didn't compete in her first long course competition until the 2019 BUCS Swimming Championships in Sheffield - setting a S5 50m Freestyle British Record at the event.

Later that year Suzanna gained selection for her international birth at the London 2019 World Para Swimming Championships with her performances at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow.
