ABOUT LUCY


Inspirational Lucy Shuker BEM is a multiple Paralympic medallist, who is aiming to represent Great Britain this year at her fifth successive Games.

Lucy and Jordanne Whiley made history at London 2012 by winning GB's first ever Women's Wheelchair Tennis medal, taking Bronze in the doubles.

The pair also won Bronze at Rio 2016 - and went one better at Tokyo 2020. Their Silver medal in Japan was the best performance to date by any British women's pair. It also meant they became the first international women's doubles pair to make the podium at three successive Paralympic Games.

Lucy broke her back aged 21 in 2001, the same year she was awarded a BSc (Hons) in the Science and Management of Exercise and Health by the University of Surrey.

She took up Wheelchair Tennis the following year - and first represented Great Britain in a Paralympic Games at Beijing 2008.

An accomplished motivational speaker, Shuker was named in 2018 as one of the most influential people with a disability.

She is currently Chair of the International Wheelchair Tennis Player Council.

And Lucy was recently the proud and humble recipient of a British Empire Medal for services to sport.
