By age six, Millie Knight lost the majority of her sight in both eyes and at the same age started skiing. As she grew older, the sport became her obsession and in 2010, she contacted the charity, Disability Snowsport UK to see how she could take her passion further.
Millie was invited on to the British Disabled Ski Team, Development Squad in 2011 and started racing in November 2012 with her Mum, Suzanne, acting as her guide.
Thanks to the support of DSUK, Millie now skis with a professional guide and represented Great Britain at the Sochi Paralympics in 2014, finishing 5th in both the Slalom and Giant Slalom. As the youngest member of the squad, Millie also carried the flag at the opening ceremony in an experience she will never forget…but all that was just a rehearsal for the 2018 Winter Paralympics in South Korea.
