Athlete main content


Stefanie Reid won T44 200m bronze at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games before making the switch to long jump. 

It was a successful move for Reid who went on to claim a silver medal from London 2012 and repeated the feat four years later at Rio 2016.

In 2017 Stef won gold at the World Championships in London and added another European gold to her name 12 months later in Berlin.

Stef was born in New Zealand to a Scottish father and English mother, grew up in Toronto, and moved to Dallas, Texas before settling back in the UK in 2010. With an honours degree in Biochemistry, a fashion model and keen public speaker, Reid is a multi-talented individual. She is also married to Paralympic medallist Brent Lakatos of Canada so they are regarded as one of the golden couples of track and field.
