Libby was 1990 born in Bollington in Cheshire,
But when she was older, eleven years of age,
She moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, to admire,
The Royal Blind School which she did stage.
She’s a sprinter competing in the 100m and 200,
But she trained and competed in normal events,
Whilst participating in Junior Blind Sport, bred,
And her brother was at pool 2012 S12 events.
At the 2006 Worlds she won a silver in the 200,
In the T12, and then in Athens she won another,
Then in January in 2011 at the IPC Worlds said,
She won a bronze in the 200m, a major runner.
In June 2012 at the European Championships,
She won both the 100 and 200m, and London
Saw her win silver in the T12 100m to eclipse,
Where her and her guide Mikail Huggins did gun.
At the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow city,
The pair ran the 100m in 12.20 seconds flat,
But then she had to get a new guide for her agility,
Chris Clarke who will do her proud in the dart.
Libby won the Para Athlete of the Year, October,
In the year 2012 at the Scottishathletics awards,
And then won it again the next year: David Wier
Presented her with her award to cheer in chords.
