Gemma Collis-McCann competed at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, finishing 8th in the Women’s Team Épée alongside Gabi Down and Justine Moore just 11 months after first taking up the sport at Durham University.

Collis-McCann became the first and only British woman to win World Cup Gold at the Montreal World Cup in 2018, after beating the 2017 Double World Champion and World No 1 Zsuszanna Kranjyak in the Women’s Category A Épée final.

Collis-McCann competed at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, finishing 8th in the Women’s Category A Épée and has broken into the World top ten and become the first British woman ever to win a Wheelchair Fencing World Cup.

Tokyo 2020 Paralympics will be her third Games – and the first time she has qualified to compete in two weapons.
