Alice Tai MBE

Alice Tai is a multi-medal-winning Paralympic swimmer who won gold at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. She is celebrated for her achievements in the pool and her inspiring journey to success.

Having started swimming in a local club at the age of 8, by 13 she had secured a place on the British Para-Swimming team, marking the beginning of an illustrious career.

The pinnacle of Tai’s career then came at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. At just 17 years old, she won a gold medal in the 4x100m medley relay and a bronze in the 100m backstroke S10

Alongside her Olympic medals, she has also won  over 20 other medals across the World and European Championships and Commonwealth Games. She has competed in several disciplines, including the 4x100m medley and freestyle, the 100m backstroke, butterfly and freestyle, the 50m freestyle, and the 400m freestyle.

Along with six world records, Alice is one of Team GB’s most successful Paralympic swimmers.

In 2023, Alice was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary Amputating Alice, a poignant and inspiring documentary that followed her life and journey, particularly her decision to undergo a life-changing surgery to amputate her right leg below the knee.
