At the moment, vision loss isn’t correctable with prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery and there is currently no treatment for the condition.
However, this tragic truth hasn’t stopped 29-year-old Libby from living her life to the fullest. The 29-year-old has represented Team GB at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012, winning silver medals at both for the 100m sprint.
This then propelled her to achieve even more success when she won gold medals for the 100m and 200m sprints at Rio in 2016.
Libby has been recognised with an MBE, too, for her contributions to athletics and charity.
