'The Golden Couple'

Sascha Kindred and Nyree Lewis, otherwise known as the 'golden couple' of disabled sport, are two of Great Britain's most successful paralympians of the last decade, amassing 20 Paralympic medals between them including an amazing 8 golds. I am the brother of Sascha and am tracking their progress from Athens 2004 to London 2012. Read about their journey to Paralympic Glory here!

The Fan Club Beginneth!

As Julie Andrews once sang, "Let's start from the very beginning, it's a very good place to start...," ..and so I will!

I am Timo Kindred (pictured), the twin brother of Sascha Kindred, half of the two person team that make up the 'Golden Couple' of disabled sport, with the other half being Sascha's partner, Nyree Lewis.

Sascha and Nyree, nicknamed the Golden Couple by the BBC and LOCOG (Make Britain Proud, pg 20)after their most recent successes at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, are two of Great Britains most decorated disabled athletes having competed for Great Britain for over two decades, amassing over 50 Paralympic, World and European Championship medals between.

Now with Beijing 2008 fast approaching and further success inevitable, I felt it was high time that a website/blog was created to honour the 'Golden Couple' and their achievements so far whilst also looking towards Beijing 2008 and beyond, and as Sascha's twin and one of their most dedicated fans, whom better to take a stab.

To begin, I will shortly be posting a profile on both athletes which will give you an idea of the amazing successes they have achieved in their sporting careers so far.

Further posts and information will follow that will include:
  • history
  • competition previews/results
  • interviews
  • facts
  • fan club merchandise
  • your questions answered
  • competitions
  • and lots more

I hope you find my site fun and informative and I and look forward to receiving any feedback or suggestions that you have at thegoldencouple@hotmail.com.
