Representing Great Britain at the 2012 Paralympics in London, Harriet Lee is a paralympic swimmer and motivational speaker who has used her incredible talent and determination to make her dream come true and compete at the very top of her favourite sport.
Diagnosed with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome – a condition from birth that left her with the left side of her body is shorter than her right – Harriet has always been a keen swimmer.
This motivational speaker made her Team GB debut in 2010 when she swam at the World Championships in Holland, winning a gold medal in the 100m Breaststroke SB9 and a silver medal in the women’s 4 x 100m individual medley 34-point relay.
Two years later and Harriet won another gold medal, this time at the British Championships in London. Again, this was in the 100m Breaststroke SB9 competition. That same year, Harriet went on to compete in the 2012 Paralympics where she achieved a new European record in the 100m Breaststroke SB9 and won a bronze medal.
Just 16 weeks earlier, Harriet had been hospitalised in intensive care, showing her superhuman grit and determination to overcome adversity and reach for the top. Her inspiring story is perfect for motivational speeches at a wide range of events to audiences of many different types.
