Bio

In 2008 Hollie Arnold made her Paralympic debut at the age of 14 – the youngest member of ParalympicsGB’s team – and went on to finish an impressive 11th in a mixed category in Beijing.

Arnold saw significant improvement by the time the next Games came around, winning bronze at the 2011 IPC Athletics World Championships before a fifth-place finish at London 2012.

Arnold went on to be a dominant force in the F46 javelin, winning back-to-back world titles in Lyon and Doha in 2013 and 2015 respectively.

At Rio 2016 Arnold became Paralympic champion, breaking the world record, and added a third world gold to her name a year later in London.

2018 proved another successful year for Arnold as she claimed European gold and also threw a world record on her way to Commonwealth Games gold.

She claimed yet another world gold in Dubai in 2019 - her fourth consecutive title - with a new European and championship record.

In 2020 Hollie became the first Paralympian to appear on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
