Podcast Episode 68: Natasha Baker | Breaking Boundaries
In this podcast, we speak with Natasha Baker. Having contracted a virus, Transverse Myelitis at just 14 months old, Natasha was left with permanent nerve damage, loss of balance and sensation and severe weakness in her legs. Watching the Sydney 2000 Paralympics, she set herself the goal of one day becoming a gold medalist. Many years later, Natasha has won 11 Gold Medals and 5 Silver between the Olympics, World Equestrian Games and the European Championships. The Rio 2016 Games saw Natasha cement her place as one of Britain's finest ever Paralympics when she and Cabral retained their London golds and added an unprecedented third in the Team Competition. Natasha works tirelessly to change the perception of disability, to inspire the next generation of Paralympic athletes and to show the world that despite any challenges, incredible things can be achieved!
