  • This will be Greta's first Paralympic Games. 
  • She won a bronze medal at the 2016 European Championships.

A member of Clonliffe Harriers Athletics Club, Greta made her debut for the Irish Para-Athletics team in June 2016 when she competed at the 2016 Para-Athletics European Championships in Grosseto, Italy. There, she competed in the T13 1500m final and came home with a bronze medal after a fantastic run.

A student of International Relations in DCU, Greta started her career in sports thanks to her parents and is looking forward to the months ahead. She is busy counting down the days to Rio when she gets to pull on the Irish singlet once more.
