ABOUT BETH

27-year-old Munro is a former netball player who turned to javelin to pursue her Paralympic dream.

Initially scouted by Disability Sport Wales, the Liverpudlian was asked to attend regular training sessions in Cardiff which eventually resulted in her taking up Taekwondo.

The rest as we say is history and the newcomer has taken the transfer in her stride by securing gold at her first international competition, the 2021 European Qualification tournament.
