Lizzie Tench H2

  • Great Britain
  • Born: 1974

Lizzie is a Paratriathlete competing internationally with the Great Britain Paratriathlon Squad. She sustained a spinal cord injury in 2012 whilst cycling when she was hit by a trailer from an overtaking car resulting in a broken back, several other injuries and paralysis from the waist down.

In her pre-injury days, Lizzie was very active and, amongst other things, enjoyed swimming, cycling and running, but had never competed in a triathlon, although it had always been her intention to do so.

Lizzie attended a Talent ID Day with British Paratriathlon in March 2014 and was selected for the GB Paratriathlon Talent Squad. She made her international debut in Madrid in September 2014 and won a Silver medal. Lizzie went on to win British titles in Paratriathlon and Paraduathlon, a Bronze medal at World Championships in 2015, the European title in 2016 and a Silver medal at the 2016 World Championships. Lizzie is currently ranked No. 1 in the World in her class (PT1 women).
