A month of medals and a Paralympic announcement for Cashmore

Published:

The four-time Paralympic swimmer will be making her paratriathlon debut at the Games in Tokyo this summer.

First making her Paralympic bow in Athens in 2004, Claire Cashmore came back from her maiden Games with two bronze medals in swimming. Four years later and Cashmore returned from Beijing with another bronze to add to her collection.

London 2012 brought a home Games for the athlete from Kidderminster and with it her best result at the Paralympics as she won two silver medals and one bronze. Rio in 2016 saw her win that elusive gold in what turned out to be her last Games before switching sports.

Having moved to paratriathlon, Cashmore has taken the sport by storm both domestically and internationally by winning British Championship gold in 2017, 2018 and 2019, European silver in 2018 and 2019, and becoming world champion in 2019.

Having not raced internationally in 2020, 2021 has seen Cashmore win two silver medals and one gold, as well as be announced on the ParalympicsGB team for Tokyo in what will be her fifth Games, but first in paratriathlon.
