By age six, Millie Knight lost 92% of her sight in both eyes and at the same age started skiing.
As she grew older, the sport became her obsession and in 2011 Millie was invited to join the British Disabled Ski Team Development Squad and started racing in November 2012 with her Mum, Suzanne, acting as her guide.
Millie now skis with a professional guide and represented Great Britain at the Sochi Paralympics in 2014, finishing 5th in both the Slalom and Giant Slalom. Millie became Britain's youngest ever Paralympian at the games and also given the honour of carrying the flag at the opening ceremony in Russia.
In 2017, age 18, Millie was crowned World Para Alpine Downhill Champion, securing a wealth of gold medals and podium finishes on the World Cup Circuit.
Millie competed in her second Winter Paralympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea in 2018, taking home two silver and one bronze medal as part of ParalympicsGB most successful ever medal haul.
