Athlete Biography

Stephanie Morton will head her debut Olympic Games in Rio after winning gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Morton was the Pilot for Felicity Johnson as the pair won the 1km time trial tandem event.

Having first began cycling competitively when she was 15, she came close to winning her first national titles in 2011 when she finished second in both the keirin and team sprint while also training for the 2012 Paralympics. In 2013, she won all three sprint titles at the Australian Championships before getting the chance to compete at her first Track World Championships where she finished fourth in the team sprint with Kaarle McCulloch.

Having defended both her team sprint and keirin national titles in 2014, she defeated her long-time idol and Rio 2016 teammate Anna Meares to win gold in the sprint at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. She also claimed silver in the 500m time trial at the Games.

Morton went close again to a World Championship podium in both 2015, placing fourth in the sprint and sixth in the keirin in 2015.

In 2016, Morton has established herself as one of the fastest women in the world, consistently posting the fastest flying 200m times, including the World Championships where she also finished fourth in the team sprint (with Meares), seventh in the keirin and eighth in the sprint.
