GOLD COAST 2018
*New Games Record
Olivia ‘Livvy’ Breen is a double Paralympian and the current T38 Long Jump IPC World Champion.
She began training with the junior group of the City of Portsmouth club in England at age 12, but she was not classified as a T38 athlete until 2012.
Her mother Helen said that a Talent Introduction Day proved to be a major turning point in Olivia's life. "She was reluctant to view herself as disabled and in any way different from her friends.
That day at made her appreciate that having cerebral palsy was part of her, and she has seen her disability as a positive element of her personality."
In 2018, Livvy was named as the Disablity Sport Wales Female Athlete of the Year 2017.
