The Paralympics event at Rio, Brazil starts next week.
Tennis ace Jordanne Whiley, 24, of Halesowen, West Mids said to Sport Magazine:
"I wanted to show people you can do beautiful shoots without being a tall model."
"That's quite obvious. I'm short, I'm disabled and I'm nowhere near perfection. But I'm very comfortable in my skin."
"I'm healthy and I think that's what women should strive for - athletes are great role models. Role models should be real people, too. I'm flawed, I'm a normal person."Power-lifter Ali Jawad, 27, representing Team Great Britain said to the magazine:
"The emphasis in my event is on bench press. It's an all-body movement, so you need all-around strength. Not having legs means it's twice as hard because I don't have that plant on the floor."
"My core has to be stronger than the average person, and my back has to be strong to support my weight. My best bench is 202kg, which is almost three and a half times my body weight of 58kg. If I hit that Rio, I'll be looking at a medal."
