Gemma is a former sprint wheelchair racer, now concentrating on throws. She has a Masters in Maths from St Andrews University and also has A-Levels in maths, physics and French and would like to be a Primary school teacher after her athletics career is over.

Outside of athletics she is involved with her local church and likes to play the flute & keyboards. She enjoys watching Rugby League and supports Super League wide Widnes Vikings. Gemma also collects badges from her travels.

She says her parents have had the greatest impact and influence on her as they always support her, no matter what happens and she considers competing at the Parlympics in Beijing as the greatest achievement in her career to date. Gemma has also swam at the national junior championships when younger.

Gemma holds the official world F32 discus record with 12.11 but has actually thrown further but not in an IPC sanctioned meeting.
