From eating bugs on I'm a Celebrity to being selected for Tokyo - Hollie Arnold, Team GB Javelin

Published on: 24th June, 2021

Hollie Arnold is a heading to her 4th Paralympic Games as part of the Paralympic GB Track and Field squad.

She competes in F46 Javelin. She was only 14 and the youngest on the team at her first games.

It's not always been an easy journey but Hollie's determination saw her win gold at the Rio Games in 2016.

Away from the sport, she made history by being a contestant on I'm a Celebrity... in 2020. She talks about what she's learnt from that and what she hopes for this summer.

Thanks for listening!
