Lizzie Tench – Paratriathlete
In March 2012, Lizzie Tench was out cycling with her partner when she was struck by a trailer being towed by a vehicle.
She suffered horrendous multiple injuries including spinal cord damage which left her paralysed from the waist down.
Later that year, when she was still recovering and at her lowest point, Lizzie visited Calvert Trust Exmoor. It was an experience that changed her life once again. Lizzie’s stay altered her outlook on life and started her on a path that would lead to big achievements.
Lizzie went on to become a Paratriathlete. She was the British Paratriathlon champion for 4 consecutive years and the European Champion! She won Silver at the ‘Worlds’ and competed for England at the Commonwealth Games.
