Kadeena Cox Disabelity
After having a stroke in 2014, she was then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and had to rebuild her sporting career.
Cox began sprinting competitively at the age of 15 after her hockey coach suggested she try the sport.Over the next three years she competed at regional under-17 meets gaining several podium finishes in the 100m events.
In 2013, she broke the 12 second barrier in the 100m for the first time, recording a time of 11.97 at the Northern Athletics Championships.She subsequently set a personal best of 11.93s for the 100m the same year.In addition to running, before her illness Cox was vying for a place on the British skeleton team.
Then on 15 September 2014 she experienced burning sensations in her right arm, which over the following few days worsened to numbness in her arm and right leg and she was again taken to hospital with suspicions of a stroke. After extensive tests she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Intent on making the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio, Cox was classified as both a T37 track and field athlete, to continuing her sprinting career, and a C2 track cyclist.
A month later Cox was selected for the Great Britain athletics team to compete at the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, where she entered the T37 100m and 200m sprints. In the heats leading up to the final of the 100m sprint, Cox posted a time of 13.59s to beat the world record set by France's Mandy Francois-Elie.Later that day she ran in the 100m T37 final, taking the gold medal in a time of 13:60, beating team mate Georgina Hermitage into second place.Her final event of the championship, the T37 200m sprint, ended in controversy after she missed registration by a minute and was disqualified from the race.
In June 2016, after securing a place at the 2016 Summer Paralympics as a T37 athlete, Cox was reclassified as a T38 category athlete, a classification for less-disabled athletes. This threw her hopes to race at Rio into jeopardy as Britain already fielded two other athletes, Sophie Hahn and Olivia Breen, who had posted faster times as T38 sprinters.
In March 2016, Cox represented Great Britain at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Montichiari. Despite being reclassified as a C4 cyclist the day before the event, she still went on to win gold in the 500m time trial with a world record of 37.456s.
In 2017 she took part in the British television winter sports show The Jump, but had her funding suspended whilst on the show due to the number of injuries contestants sometimes suffer.In April 2018, Kadeena took part in The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off on Channel 4 in aid of Standup to Cancer. In 2021, she appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox with fellow athlete Adam Gemili.
