Amy Truesdale won a bronze medal at Tokyo 2020 as Para taekwondo made its debut at the Games.

Truesdale already had 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.
