Jude has been playing wheelchair basketball since 2007 and made the national team for the first time in 2009. Since then she appeared at every major tournament, 2 Paralympic Games, 3 World Championships, and 6 European Championships. Currently they second in the world and in Europe.
Whilst training full time for the last ten years Jude have graduated from a BSc in Biochemistry and an MSc in Pharmacology and Biotechnology. When she is not training for wheelchair basketball she love to train for CrossFit, adaptive fitness is a big passion of hers and she loves to push herself in new and different ways.
Jude wasn’t always sporty and she is very passionate about encouraging other people especially those with limb differences to find their outlet in life.

I’ve been an appearance liaison to Jude on the Athlete Inspire Programme since 2017 and have always found her to be easy to work with. She responds quickly to any communications and always takes the time to discuss the client’s objectives with them to maximise the impact she makes with each appearance.Jude is passionate about the topics speaks, but clearly understands her strengths when presenting and delivers her message with great clarity. I would highly recommend her as a speaker. - Andy Barrow, Professional speaker, appearance liaison - Athlete Inspire Programme
