A woman of many talents, Fabienne Andre took up swimming aged 14 on the advice of a doctor after having a major leg operation - and she more than held her own in the water.
But despite enjoying success as a para swimmer at national level, including winning four medals at the 2018 Cerebral Palsy World Games, she was keen to expand her sporting world.
And after initially setting her mind on doing a triathlon, Andre was invited to the Weir Archer academy - the home of David Weir - to try out wheelchair racing and quickly discovered a new passion.
She was subsequently placed on the Para Potential Programme for the 2024 Paralympics in Paris before winning T34 100m and 800m gold medals at the European Championships in 2018.
A physiotherapist assistant away from the track, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympian also has a number of hobbies including crochet and learning sign language.
