In the next episode, we follow Paralympian Lauren Parker and her journey 'Down the Blue Carpet' towards Paris 2024.
Lauren Parker is one of Australia’s most promising para triathletes. She is the reigning world champion in the women’s PTWC category, won a Commonwealth Games bronze medal just 12 months post accident and has achieved a podium place in all but one race since returning to international competition in 2018. At her Paralympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, Lauren Parker claimed silver in the women’s PTWC class, to finish with a time of 1:06.26. Despite leading for the majority of the race, she was pipped by Kendall Gretsch (USA) by one second in a thrilling sprint finish.
