WHEN she left Leeds for the Rio Paralympics, Kadeena Cox was a largely unheralded competitor who harboured dreams of winning gold medals in two separate sports. Now she is the new poster girl of Team GB after exceeding her own expectations – and winning the hearts of the nation – thanks to her prowess, personality and fearless will to win.

It’s why words cannot do justice to her emotional reunion with relatives at Heathrow Airport. They knew the heartbreak Kadeena suffered when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis – and they also knew that this would probably be the 25-year-old’s best chance of making her mark on the world.
