Karé Adenegan showed her star potential at the age of 14 when she claimed double bronze at the IPC Athletics World Championships in 2015.

A year later Adenegan was part of the ParalympicsGB team at Rio 2016 where she won bronze in the T34 400m and 800m and silver in the T34 100m.

In 2017 she competed at the London Stadium for the World Championships where she won 100m silver and bronze in the 400m and 800m.

With Adenegan firmly established as a force to be reckoned with on the international scene she claimed her first major international gold medal in 2018 when she won 100m gold at the European Championships in Berlin – pipping fellow Brit Hannah Cockroft to top-spot on the podium.

In 2018 she was also named as the BBC Young Sports Personality of the year.
