Full Name: Claire Georgina Katie Cashmore

DOB: 21.05.1988

Born: Worcestershire, England

Height: 1.66 m

Nickname: Bear  

A seasoned Paralympian, Rio 2016 was Claire’s fourth Paralympics and most successful to date. She entered the world stage at only 16 years old, qualifying for Athens and coming home with 2 bronze medals, a bronze at the games in Beijing in 2008, and a further 2 silvers and a bronze in London 2012.

London 2012 saw a big boost in Claire’s profile as she was chosen to be one of the faces of Channel 4’s hugely successful Meet the Superhumans campaign – she was featured on billboards nationwide and in a number of adverts on Channel 4 speaking candidly about her disability.  

Claire’s performance in the pool at Rio 2016 was impressive. With experience under her belt, she won silver in the SB8 100m breaststroke and her first gold in the 4 x 100m medley relay.

Claire is a great ambassador for disability sport and regularly gives motivational talks to children and adults.

Claire Cashmore was born without a left forearm, which does not stop her telling people — as a little private joke — that she lost it in a shark attack […] Smart, fiercely ambitious, well-spoken and rather funny”
