Athlete main content


Tokyo 2020 was Bailey’s second Paralympic Games, having made her Paralympic debut at Rio 2016, two years after joining the Shooting Para sport squad. A talented hockey player growing up in Cirencester, she was introduced to pistol shooting as part of her rehabilitation at Stoke Mandeville hospital.

Bailey – the sole representative in pistol shooting in the ParalympicsGB squad - secured a quota spot for the team after finishing ninth in qualifying at the 2019 World Championships in Sydney. She competed in the women’s 10m air pistol SH1 and mixed 25m pistol SH1 but did not advance to the finals.
