Track and field paralympic athlete

Libby Clegg is one of Great Britain and Scotland’s most successful track and field athletes of recent years, competing in the 100 and 200m sprints. She won silver in the 100m in Beijing and London, and has regularly won medals at European and World Championships since 2006.

Libby has a deteriorating eye condition known as Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy disease. She only has slight peripheral vision in her left eye, and is registered as blind. She’s recently changed from a T12 to a T11 classification, meaning she now wears a blindfold while running with her guide runner, Chris Clarke. In her first official race as a T11, Libby broke the 200m world record at the Anniversary Games in London.
