'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!

It's Awards time.......again!

Last week saw Sascha and Nyree attend the Hereford Sports Awards for the first time since moving to Herefored at the start of 2006.

There were a number of awards up for grabs including Coach of the Year, Club of the Year, Sports Council Services to Sport, and of course the three categories involving the Golden Couple themselves, Sportsman of the Year, Sportswoman of the Year, and Disabled Sports Personality of the Year Awards.

Being new to town, Sascha and Nyree might not have expected to win the awards in their first year, but after sterling performances all year round which has seen both swimmers break numerous records in their favourite events, plus retain their titles at the IPC World Championships in Durbna last December, the awards couldnt' have really gone to anyone else. And the new stars of Hereford were duly crowned!

Emma Patrick, Sascha and Nyree's coach also got a special commendation in the award's coaching category having been a major influence in their improved performances during the last year.

Here are a couple of pictures from the event:








(if you look closely you can see great colour co-ordination!)
