'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!

IPC Names GB World Championship Squad

Sascha and Nyree have been named in a strong team to represent Great Britain at the IPC World Championships in Durban, South Africa later this year.

For Sascha, this will be his fourth World Championships in which he will be defending his 100m breastroke, and 200IM titles for the first time. Sascha, who is number 1 in the world for both events, and the current world record holder, will be tough to beat having broken both world records this year. He will also make a bid for his first ever major championship medal in the 50m butterfly.


For Nyree, this will be her second games, but one in which she will undoubtably look to make a bid for a hat full of medals in events including 100m breaststroke, 200IM, and 100m backstroke in which she is the current world record holder.

The IPC World Championships will take place between the 2nd and 10th of December.
