Alice Tai unveiling a park bench in her home town of New Milton, Hampshire in honour of  her Paralympic gold in 2016.<br />
<br />
A Paralympic gold medalist was banned from competing in the final of a regular swimming race because of her disability.<br />
<br />
Alice Tai was 'disgusted' with the ruling after she had sailed through the heats of the Middlesex County Championships against able-bodied swimmers.<br />
<br />
But she was prevented from taking her rightful place in the finals of the 50m and 100m backstroke because she wasn't eligible.
