'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!

DSE Short Course Swimming Championships

This weekend saw Nyree and Sascha take to the pool at the DSE Short Course Swimming Championships in Swansea, Wales.

Both were swimming in various events including a swim in the 100m Backstroke for Sascha, not one of his usual events. But never-the-less, Sascha didn't fail to dissapoint by breaking the British record!

For Nyree, it was also a record breaking weekend as she took the 400 freestyle race in a new European time.
