Kylie Grimes Joins The Harlequins Foundation’s Ambassador Team

We are delighted to announce that GB Wheelchair Rugby’s Kylie Grimes has joined our fantastic team of Ambassadors. 

Kylie is a double Paralympian of the London and Rio games, currently training for the Tokyo 2021 Paralympics.

While she competed in athletics in Rio, her love for team sports has seen her return to her first love of wheelchair rugby.

An athlete, show jumper, and aspiring Olympian all of her life, within just three years of her life-changing spinal injury in 2006 Kylie returned to competitive sport by cycling 450 km, from Vietnam to Cambodia, to raise money for Regain, a charity dedicated to helping get newly injured tetraplegics back into sport.

Having undergone a remarkably swift personal rehabilitation herself, she now seeks to help others do the same and continues to undertake sponsored rides around the world for Regain.

She started playing for the London Wheelchair Rugby Club in 2010, and for Great Britain in 2011. In 2012 she qualified for her first Paralympics in London, in which the team finished fifth.
