Born in Durban, South Africa, Katja took up swimming at an early age with her twin brother but didn’t swim competitively until 2012. Just four years later, Katja made her Paralympic debut in Rio where she won bronze in the S13 100m backstroke and reached the final of the S13 400m Freestyle, finishing seventh. She won two more bronze medals at the Tokyo Paralympics. A four-time Australian champion who is blind in her right eye and has limited vision in her left will be competing in vision-impaired swimming events in Birmingham.
