Wheelchair Moto Cross: Teen’s Push For Paralympic Recognition

September 7, 2021

Lily Rice is already a world champion – now she wants her sport to feature in the Paralympics and to take her own shot at gold.

The 17-year-old from Manorbier in Pembrokeshire is pushing for Wheelchair Moto Cross to be in the games by 2028.

She became the women’s world champ back in 2019 – and the first woman in Europe to successfully pull of a backflip in a wheelchair.

As well as pushing for Paralympic recognition, she is also working to improve facilities across Wales for others to take up the sport.

But – as Lily knows full well – it’s a sport that comes with its risks.
