My name is Charlotte Cox and I am 23 years old and I have Mosaic Down Syndrome, some see Down Syndrome as a disability I see it as part of me and I want to make the most of all the opportunities that come my way, fortunately Athletics has given me lots of opportunities, and I just want to keep on going!.

I live in a village near Cambridge with my Mum and Dad, my sister Harriet and my brother Will.
