Bio

Menna Fitzpatrick learned to ski when she was five-years-old and would ski behind her Dad on family holidays.

Menna made her senior international debut for Great Britain in 2012 and in March 2016, she and guide Jennifer Kehoe made history by becoming the first British skiers to win the overall World Cup visually impaired title in Aspen.

It came in the then 17-year-old’s first season competing at World Cup level, with the duo also picking up the giant slalom Crystal Globe, silver in the overall super-G and bronze in the overall downhill and slalom events.

At the 2017 World Championships in Tarvisio, Italy, Menna and Jennifer claimed bronze in the giant slalom while they began the 201718 season in superb fashion, winning two silvers and two bronzes at the opening World Cup in Kuhtai.

At the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games Menna became Britain’s most successful Winter Paralympian as she claimed slalom gold, super combined silver, giant slalom silver and super-G bronze.
