Liz Johnson is a Paralympic swimmer holding a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal. She has a very charismatic personality and a truly inspiring story, losing her mother days before she went to Beijing Olympics.

Since being introduced to swimming at the age of 3, following advice that it would help with her cerebral palsy, Liz has been crowned Paralympic Champion, laid the final tile in the London 2012 aquatic centre, been bestowed the honour of reading the athlete’s oath at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Paralympic Games, and claimed another Paralympic medal in her home Games.

Liz Johnson is a Paralympic swimmer holding a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal. She has a very charismatic personality and a truly inspiring story, losing her mother days before she went to Beijing Olympics.

Since being introduced to swimming at the age of 3, following advice that it would help with her cerebral palsy, Liz has been crowned Paralympic Champion, laid the final tile in the London 2012 aquatic centre, been bestowed the honour of reading the athlete’s oath at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Paralympic Games, and claimed another Paralympic medal in her home Games.

At just 14, Liz was already competing at a national level, before making the British team shortly after. In 2006, she claimed two Gold Medals at the IPC World Championships, building on her successes at the Athens Paralympics where she won a Silver Medal. Creating a name for herself as an elite swimmer, a few years later Liz fulfilled a lifetime ambition by winning Gold at the 2008 Paralympics, dedicating it to her mother who sadly passed away during the Games. Fast forward 4 years and a plethora of World Championship medals, Liz added to her Paralympic medal collection at London 2012 as she set a new Paralympic record in the process.

In addition to her swimming ambitions, Liz graduated as an accountant in 2008, with a degree in business management and finance. She was also an ambassador for London 2012 partner EDF. Away from the pool, Liz has featured regularly on That Paralympic Show and in ad campaigns for BT.

With a home medal under her belt from the 2012 Games, a spot as a Paralympic pundit from Rio 2016, and not to mention an accounting degree, Liz’s unstoppable enthusiasm, energy and resilience is undeniably inspirational.
