Erin Cleaver

Charlestown, New South Wales

Paralympian, ambassador

This young athlete with cerebral palsy competed in her first Paralympics at just 16, bringing home bronze for the 4x100m relay at Rio. Erin backed this up with a silver medal in long jump at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. As an advocate for inclusion, in 2020 she featured in the #BeThatGirl campaign that showcased Sportsgirl employees from all walks of life. When she is not training, the Newcastle-based athlete is a motivational speaker and a keen fundraiser for Variety Australia. Erin now has her sights set on competing in the long jump and 100m event at the Tokyo Paralympics.
