Caz Walton

Paralympian from Great Britain
Caz Walton has been involved in every Paralympic Games since 1964. She travelled to Tokyo in 1964 to participate in the second summer Paralympics. Her first gold medal in the Japanese capital (in the women’s slalom track event) is Britain’s first track gold in Paralympic history.
In eight Games, Walton won Paralympic medals in four different sports (athletics, fencing, swimming and table tennis). She won a total of 17 Paralympic medals, 10 of them gold, before her final appearance as a competitor in Barcelona in 1992.
In addition to her successful career as an athlete, Walton has helped to develop the Paralympic movement in Great Britain, enabling the country to become a leading nation in Paralympic sport. As its longest serving employee, she has played a key role in the development of the BPA since its inception in 1989, bringing her experience as an athlete to the fore to ensure that the BPA continues to work as an athlete-focussed organisation.
During her time with the BPA, Walton assumed the role of team manager for the fencing team at the 1996, 2000 and 2008 Games. For the 2004 Athens Games, she was administrator to the entire British team. She currently holds the position of athlete services officer and has also, for some time, played a really important role in advising athletes and officials on classification matters.
Caz Walton was born Carol Bryant on 1947. She married lives in Croydon.
Walton was made an OBE for her services to disability sport in the 2010 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
