Truesdale already has an impressive medal tally and is best known for her World Championship wins in 2014 and 2017.

The Chester-born athlete was initially encouraged to take up the martial art by her father for self-defence alongside her sister, Chloe.

Before receiving UK Sport funding and joining the GB programme fulltime, Truesdale had a brief stint in retail and was also a coach in the TAGB style of the sport.

With Taekwondo having joined the Paralympic movement in 2015, Truesdale’s primary aim has been to make history at the multi-sport event.

She is also a keen advocate for disability sport and has made it her mission to raise awareness.
