'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!

Sasch and Nyree win again...!

Well, as many of you may have seen by now if you were watching the highlights on the BBC yesterday, Sascha and Nyree both did well at the Visa Paralympic World Cup with great swims in their main events earning them two golds and a silver between them.

In the SM6 200m IM for Men, Sascha again dominated a race in which he has gone unbeaten now in major competitions since before Sydney 2000. A very impressive feat, but he knows that he'll have to keep up the work with his main rivals from GB, Matthew Whorewood and Gareth Duke pushing him all the way. The trio gave GB a clean sweep finishing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. The winning time posted by Sascha was 2:55.85.

IN the same event for the ladies Nyree pushed her main rival from GB Nathalie Jones all the way but couldn't quite beat her finishing second, yet she went out strongly in her more favoured event the S6 100m Backstroke and won in a very impressive time of 1:31.29.

I will update later with photos and feedback from both Sascha and Nyree.
