'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!

Coming up.........Timo interviews the coach

Since their move earlier in the year to Hereford to train with their previous swimming coach Emma Patrick, Sascha and Nyree seem to have found a new 'lust' for the sport again which has been dodging them for some time. The old will they, won't they go onto Beijing and perhaps even London, was something that I don't even think they were certain with a year ago.

But now, with a new training regime seeming to work wonders for both athletes, shown by their recent British, European and World Records in the pool, Sascha and Nyree appear to have settled back into things and are heading for a collision course with the World Championships in Durban later this year, and Beijing in 2008.

I managed to grab 15 minutes with Emma Patrick recently to ask her a few questions about their progress, and what it was like to be coaching the Golden Couple again.

Read her interview this week, here.........
