Parasport Summer Athletes to Watch | Marlou van Rhijn I ParaAthletics

Updated: Jul 2, 2019

Finally, winter is over (apart from for you lot down-under!) and sunny spring days have given us a glimpse of the summer of sport which lies ahead of us. Here we present athletes who have stayed hot, despite the cold, and that you need to keep an eye on in summer 2017.


Nowadays, no self-respecting top list starts with anyone else but the ‘Blade Babe’. It’s obligatory. Mainly because she’s a phenomenon.

With the World Para Athletics Championships coming up in July, it’s hard to see anyone getting close to Marlou van Rhijn in the T44 100m & 200m.

Considering that a big crowd is expected at the Olympic Stadium in London, coupled with a fast track, you can only assume that records will tumble.
