Norway’s Sarah Louise Rung won four of the five events in which she competed at the IPC Swimming World Championships in Montreal. Her success in 2013 followed the two gold and two silver medals she won at the London Paralympics the previous year. Sarah, 24, has made a remarkable impact in Paralympic sport since she became paralysed from the waist down, due to complications from back surgery just four years ago. She is also an ambassador for sport charity Right To Play.
