The Clinical Negligence Team is proud to sponsor Paralympic athlete Katrina Hart who is presently competing in the IPC World Championships in Lyon.
Katrina, who has cerebral palsy, is competing in the T37 100m and T37 200m. Katrina ran a season’s best time of 30.16 in the 200m heat last week to reach the 200m final. On Wednesday 24 July she runs in the 100m final, along with fellow British athlete Bethany Woodward.
Katrina was a bronze medallist at London 2012, as part of the women’s T35/38 4 x 100 relay team. The team, consisting of Katrina, Olivia Breen, Bethy Woodward and Jenny McLoughlin, recorded a time of 56.08, finishing just behind Russia and China.
Katrina has a significant haul of medals to her name already. AT the 2005 European Championships, when she was the youngest member of the British team, she won a bronze medal in the T37 100m. At the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi she won a gold medal for England in the T37 100m, and at the 2011 World Championships she won gold in the T37 200m and bronze in the T37 100m.
Katrina trains at Bath University, from where she graduated in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Sports Performance.
She has been sponsored by The Clinical Negligence Team over the last two years, and we were delighted to share in her medal success at London 2012
The Clinical Negligence Team are specialist cerebral palsy solicitors and have frequently won life-changing sums of damages for clients who have developed cerebral palsy as a result of avoidable injury at birth. We are committed to helping people with cerebral palsy reach their full potential, and are privileged to be associated with a fantastic role model like Katrina.
Good luck in the 100m final this afternoon Katrina!!
