'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!

"We hereby certify...

...that the image of Sascha Kindred Punching his fist into the air with delight after winning the 100M Breaststroke final at the Sydney Paralympics in 2000 will be used on all World Record certificates issued by the International Paralympic Committee."
Yes, Sascha and Nyree were down this weekend to see the dreaded dentist near our mother's in Crawley that they've been going to see for a few years now so they popped by to see me and Sascha proudly showed off one of his latest World Record Certificates which has a number of swimmer images on. One of them is of him and will now appear on all certificates for the forseeable future. Very cool huh!
At first I didn't see the picture of him and my reaction was something along the lines of, "oh, another World Record? So, what are we doing tonight then!!"
Anyway, here's an image of the certificate so you can see what one looks like. This one was achieved in the 200m Individual Medley SM6 event in November of 2007.
