  • Meet the Future of Paralympic Swimming: The 16 Project

    456,787 views 2 weeks ago
    Ellie Robinson has set Paralympic records and won gold at Rio—all before turning 16. As a Paralympic athlete, she was born with a form of dwarfism known as cartilage-hair hypoplasia (CHH). Despite the obstacles, Ellie has let little get in her way. In the first episode of VICE Sports’ 16 Project, we caught up with the Northampton, England native who has become known for her competitive drive and her poolside swagger to learn about her intense training regimen, and what it takes to go for gold at Tokyo 2020.

    Presented by Michelin.
