BBC Sport - Julie Payne's bid to compete at 2016 Rio ­Paralympics

Payne's ultimate Rio ambition

BBC Sport meets Julie Payne to learn more about her remarkable bid to compete at the 2016 Rio ­Paralympics.

In June 2012, Payne was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, a degenerative disease which will eventually lead to her being unable to move anything but her eyes.

Undeterred, the 51-year-old qualified as a grade 4 Paralympic athlete last year and is now a member of the Team GB equestrian squad and hopes to defy her prognosis and compete in Rio.
