Melissa Reid:

"I’m a visually impaired paratriathlete from Cornwall, competing for Great Britain. I gained a Bronze at the Rio Paralympic Games, and look to improve on that going into Tokyo 2020. Together with my guide, Nicole Walters, I am training hard to make it. I have won gold at the World, European and British Champs and am the reigning World Aquathon Champion."

Melissa is on a mission to get back to the Paralympics, and as being part of the As One Talks, it would be incredible to make a donation to her fund. Please follow the link to donate:
