'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.......

Well, there's not been much happening for Sascha and Nyree, so I thought I'd remind you all of what they have coming up in the near future.

This coming week Sascha and Nyree have both been nominated for awards at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Partnership Sports Awards - as the female and male sports personality of the year. They recently cleaned up at the Hereford Sports Awards so maybe another win is on the cards!?

Later this month they have the CP Nationals in Nottingham, and then from the 28th of March to April 1st it is the British Nationals in Manchester.

On May the 4th, they have both been invited to the opening of a local school in Hertfordshire - yes, not just swimming pools, but schools now as well! Soon it will be towns, and then the world!

Later in May, Sascha and Nyree are both on the programme during this year's Paralympic World Cup in Manchester - the third World Cup to take place. Sascha will be swimming in his favourite event the 200IM and is likely to face some tough competition from some of his main rivals which will give us all a good idea of who is in good shape just one year away from Beijing. Nyree is confirmed to race in the 200Im and the 100 back, so she has an even tougher task, but will be looking to lay down a marker before Beijing also.

So all in all they have some busy months ahead. Keep up the good work!!
