'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!

The Paralympic World Cup

You may have noticed that this year's Paralympic World Cup is well underway. With four sports on show including cycling, swimming, athletics and basketball, there's plenty of action to keep even the most hardened sports fan satisfied.

The World Cup takes place over the space of 4 days and is in it's 4th year. It is, at the moment, held in Manchester each year, although after time I believe it will be held in other locations around the world as the popularity of it grows. The idea behind it was to have a regular world cup in which athletes could compete as there was not a regular competition each year and some years could see athletes without a major championships to compete in.

Sascha and Nyree swim today at the Aquatic Centre in Manchester and you will be able to see highlights of the swimming and other sports on BBC2 between 4:00pm and 5:50pm. They will both be competing in the 200IM S6 category.
