'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!

British International Disability Championships

Sascha and Nyree will be swimming at this weekend's British International Disability Championships at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

Other British contenders to watch out for during the event will be Paralympic Games medallists David Roberts, Natalie Jones, Liz Johnson and Gareth Duke as well as youngster Eleanor Simmonds who will be looking to record qualifying times for the Beijing team.

Although Sascha and Nyree swam very well a few weeks ago at the Paralympic Trials, the event is another opportunity to gain qualifying times for Beijing or indeed cement their positions for Beijing and get another psychological edge over their rivals.
