HOME grown sports star Hollie Arnold has made it into Great Britain’s Paralympic squad for the 2012 Games from August 29.

Hollie, formerly of Holton le Clay but now Glamorgan in Wales, a javelin thrower, will take part in her second Paralympics after representing her country in Beijing in 2008.

The 18-year-old former Louth student was born without a right forearm.

She faced a nervous wait before being given the nod by selectors yesterday.
