British sportswoman, a Paralympic athlete who won her first race at age 15 in the 100m at the Junior National Games in spite of being born with spina bifida and confined to a wheelchair.

She studied politics and sports at University. Tanni has been at the top of her sport for the last 13 years and holds records in events ranging from 100m to the marathon. An ambassador for sports and disability awareness, she has won 14 paralympic medals, including 9 Olympic Golds (four of which were won at Sydney's Paralympic Games in October 2000).

Her autobiography, Seize the Day , was published on 4 October 2001. Her husband is Dr. Ian Thompson and she gave birth to their only child, a 7lb 12oz girl named Carys Olivia, at 9.55am on 4 February 2002 delivered by Caesarean section at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. Personality-wise, she enjoys a good laugh at her own expense, is modest and does not want to be seen as a pioneer, simply as an athlete.

Baroness Grey-Thompson is also a parliamentarian and a television presenter.
