Olivia Breen

Date of Birth

26 July 1996






This young lady burst on to the scene in Gateshead in April 2012. She has been running, training and competing for a home based club but has only just been identified by the UKA development programme.

And what an entrance she has made. Breen came away from the London 2012 Paralympic Games with a bronze medal in the T35-T38 4x100m relay, along with Wales and ParalympicsGB teammate Jenny Mcloughlin.

Olivia took two bronze medals in the IPC European Championships in Holland in both the 100m and 200m.

She is now a member of the DSW Academy. She is a bubbly and exuberant individual, who takes life as it comes and thrives in the competition scene.

Her parents and extended family are based in Cardiff and she is extremely proud of her Welsh roots.
