Sarah Clifton-Bligh (athletics) is one of Australia’s rising Para-athlete stars and will make her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham. In 2021, Clifton-Bligh was awarded the 2021/22 Kurt Fearnley Scholarship – a joint venture between Commonwealth Games Australia and the Carbine Club NSW, supporting young para-athletes with their journey to the 2022 Birmingham Games. Dabbling in both track and field events, Clifton-Bligh has honed her focus to wheelchair racing in the T33 classification, and in 2021 was ranked number one in the world in the 100m T33 event after clocking a time under 24 seconds. Clifton-Bligh began racing after she took rein of the infamous ‘blue chair’ of New South Wales Para-sport that has been used by the likes of Commonwealth Gold medallists such as Angela Ballard and Kurt Fearnley AO. Clifton-Bligh is now being coached by Manchester 2002 silver medallist Louise Sauvage OAM.
