Bio

Stefanie Reid won her first Paralympic medal at the Beijing Games in 2008, when she claimed bronze in the T44 200m for Canada.

By London 2012, Reid had switched allegiance to Great Britain - she was born in New Zealand to a Scottish father and English mother and grew up in Toronto. Competing in front of a home crowd, she won silver in the T44 long jump.

Reid added another Paralympic silver medal to her collection at Rio 2016 where she finished second in the T44 long jump once again.

Reid struck global gold at the London 2017 World Championships but was unable to defend her title in 2019 due to injury.

With an honours degree in Biochemistry, a fashion model and keen public speaker, Reid is a multi-talented individual. She is married to Paralympic medallist Brent Lakatos of Canada.
