'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!

Sascha & Nyree Win Top Award

Following yesterday's BBC Midlands Sports Awards 2007, I'm delighted to announce that Sascha and Nyree jointly won the 'Disabled Sports Person of the Year'. It is the first time in the history of the awards that two people have won an award jointly, but makes perfect sense seeing as one could not achieve so much without the other. So well done to them both for achieving so much following a year which saw no major championships but both Sascha and Nyree set new records in many of their events.
