Menna Fitzpatrick learned to ski when she was five-years-old, skiing behind her dad on family holidays.

Menna made her senior international debut for Great Britain in 2012 and in March 2016, she and guide Jennifer Kehoe made history by becoming the first British skiers to win the overall World Cup title and Crystal Globe.

It came in the then 17-year-old’s first season competing at World Cup level, with the duo also picking up the giant slalom Crystal Globe, silver in the overall super-G and bronze in the overall downhill and slalom events.

At the 2017 World Championships in Tarvisio, Italy, Menna and Jen claimed bronze in the giant slalom, while they began the 201718 season in superb fashion, winning two silvers and two bronzes at the opening World Cup in Kuhtai.

At the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games Menna became Britain’s most successful Winter Paralympian as she claimed slalom gold, super combined silver, giant slalom silver and super-G bronze at her debut Games.

At the 2019 World Championships in Sella Nevea, Italy Menna and Jen won five medals, including gold in the visually impaired downhill and the Super-G.

Menna joined forces with new guide Katie Guest in 2021 and the pair went on to win slalom gold and Super combined silver at the delayed 2021 World Championships in Lillehammer, Norway.

A month later at the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games, Menna became the most decorated Winter Paralympian in history when she won super-G silver on the second day of competition on the slopes of Yanqing. Skiing with guide Gary Smith after Katie was unable to travel to China because of a positive COVID test, Menna then added super combined bronze 24 hours later to take her overall Paralympic medal tally to six.
