Menna Fitzpatrick was born visually impaired; she has no vision in her left eye and limited sight in her right – less than 5% overall vision. Determined that she would not be disadvantaged, her parents taught her to ski when she was 5 years old on holidays in France.
In 2012, after being spotted skiing at the Chill Factore in Manchester, she was invited to train with the British Team, initially with her Dad as her guide.
Since then, Menna has gone on to win an amazing 16 Paralympic and World Championships medals along with numerous World Cup Medals and Titles.
With her Guide, Katie Guest, she is continuing to add to those totals and further cement her legacy as Britain’s most decorated Winter Paralympian.
