Wheelchair racer Madison De Rozario is a 3 x Paralympic silver medallist, a 2 time Commonwealth Games gold medallist, winner of the London Marathon, and multiple World Championship medallist. Madison competes in a range of wheelchair track and road events, including the 800m, 1500m and the gruelling marathon; in the T53 classification - where athletes typically have full function of the arms but no abdominal or lower spinal muscle activity. She is currently preparing for her fourth paralympics in Tokyo. There’s no bs with Madison, and as you’ll hear, she has some powerful insights into the importance of representation and visibility of both female and para-athletes.
