On her 4th Olympics Madison de Rozario annihilates the field to win her Gold.

On what was hailed as a Super Sunday for our Australian athletes on the track in Tokyo we saw Madison De Rozario annihilate the field in the 800 meters and finally take home that gold medal that eluded her the most.

Madison our WA female para athlete who attended Willieton Senior High school is now based in New South Wales coached by Louise Savage.

At just 14 Madison competed at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and won silver in the women's 4x100 T53/54. No medals in London 2012 but she came back in 2016 Rio Paralympics to win two silver medals. That same year Madison was awarded Wheelchair Sports WA , Sport Star of the Year and at 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast she won Gold x 2 but it was the Olympic gold that was just to far from her grasp.She also won the Womens wheelchair title in the London Marathon that same year.

Madison de Rozario – Para-athletics – 800, 1500, 5000 and 4x400
T53 – spinal cord injury from transverse myelitis is also a barbie doll and is on billboards around Sydney.

Madison you are a star and an inspiration. Thank you for being a Women in Sport WA every day girl.

There is more to come from this amazing athlete.
