Biography

British sportswoman, winner of her first race at age 15 in the 100m at the Junior National Games in spite of being born with spina bifida and confined to a wheelchair.

She studied politics and sports at University. Tanni has been at the top of her sport for the last 13 years and holds records in events ranging from 100m to the marathon. An ambassador for sports and disability awareness, she has won 14 paralympic medals, including 9 Olympic Golds (four of which were won at Sydney¹s Paralympic Games in October 2000).

Her autobiography was published on 10/04/2001, and she gave birth to a girl in February 2002. Personality-wise, she enjoys a good laugh at her own expense, is modest and does not want to be seen as a pioneer, simply as an athlete.
