There’s a Paralympian within the Pinches family

Blog Post

With PyeongChang Winter Paralympics 2018 underway, Ffion our receptionist’s younger sister Menna Fitzpatrick is a Paralympian preparing to compete in the downhill event in South Korea.

Today is the day that both Ffion and Menna are reunited as she goes to cheer her sister on in South Korea.

Menna is making her Winter Paralympic debut at just 19 years old, and Ffion couldn’t be more proud. With no vision in her left eye and only limited site in her right, it takes a great deal of courage to ski downhill at such pace. Yet self-confessed daredevil, Menna, says the sport completely suits her personality.

Menna teamed up with Toyota in the build-up to the Winter Paralympics to create an Instagram account that allows everyone to experience what it feels like to ‘See like Menna’.

Below is an image from the profile that gives you a taste of how it feels on the slopes.


Menna's vision.


We here at Pinches would like to wish Menna the best of luck!
