Amy Marren – Paralymic Swimmer – 15
Amy is a very enthusiastic and talented swimmer. She was selected at the very young age of 14 to compete in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Amy was born in Newham. From birth she had her right hand missing. She has been swimming since the age of 4 and has never felt she could not achieve in her chosen sport.
She now holds 3 British records, 2 European records and swims under Romford Swimming Club.
Amy has high hopes for the Rio Olympics in 2016 and is confident she can win Olympic medals in several different disciplines.
“The LRT funding will help me tremendously. Knowing that I have the financial support to be able to purchase my swimming essentials and be able to compete in competitions where I often stay away for up to a week at a time is great.”
