Beth Munro has been named in Paralympics GB's taekwondo team for the Tokyo Games. Beth is 27 and from Liverpool and has had a remarkable few months. In her first international competition she qualified a place for the Games and this week has been selected.

Beth played netball and threw javelin until 2019 when she was spotted and invited to try out for taekwondo. She'd never done a martial art before. She took to it and now will be mixing it with the best in the world.

I loved Beth's passion and infectious enthusiasm for the sport. I hope you do to.
