'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 Schedule...

Sascha Kindred and Nyree Lewis will be swimming on the following dates:

Sunday 7th September
Sascha - 200M SM6 Individual Medley (1) – WR Holder and Defending Champion
Nyree - 200M SM6 Individual Medley (2)

Tuesday 9th September
Sascha – 100M SB7 Breaststroke (1) – WR Holder and Defending Champion
Nyree – 100M S6 Backstroke (1) – WR Holder and Defending Champion

Friday 12th September
Nyree – 100M SB5 Breaststroke (2)

Sunday 14th September
Nyree – 400M S6 Freestyle (2)

Monday 15th September
Sascha – 50M S6 Freestyle (8) – British Record Holder

The numbers in brackets are their world rankings so as you can see they have a pretty realistic chance of defending some, if not all, of their titles from Athens four years ago I which Sascha won three medals (two gold and one bronze) and Nyree won five medals (two gold, two silver and one bronze).

BBC television coverage of the Paralympics will be more extensive than ever with coverage being streamed live for six hours a day through the red button (interactive) and via broadband. They will have heats in the morning (heats begin at about 03:00 GMT) and finals in the evenings (begin at about 10:00 GMT). Daily highlight programmes on the BBC will be shown between 1900 and 2000 and will also be available on iPlayer.
Any questions feel free to ask me!
