Menna Fitzpatrick became Great Britain's most decorated Winter Paralympian after a fantastic performance at her debut Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, in 2018.
The young alpine skier, guided by Jennifer Kehoe, took gold in the women’s slalom vision impaired, silver in the giant slalom and super-combined, and bronze in the super-G.
She also ended second in the overall World Cup standings.
One year before, she had taken bronze in giant slalom at her maiden World Championships in Tarvisio, Italy.
In 2015-16, Fitzpatrick became the first British skier to win the overall women’s vision impaired World Cup.
Fitzpatrick had impressed all season long, stealing multiple podiums on her debut season on the circuit. She edged out her US rival Danelle Umstead by just 10 points.
Her rapid rise has led to national acclaim.
Fitzpatrick received the 2016 Evie Pinching Award, given to an athlete aged 24 and under who is considered an emerging talent by the Ski Club of Great Britain.
The youngster is the latest vision impaired skier to come out of Great Britain, in addition to Millie Knight who stole the show at the 2015 World Championships with a silver and bronze in the giant slalom and slalom respectively.
Fitzpatrick’s idol is five-time Olympic rowing champion Sir Steve Redgrave.
