Nick is a paraplegic swimmer who is working hard in his training. To help him on his way, we paid for him to join his local gym/swimming pool for a year. He had several competitions in 2011 (although the bad weather didn’t help) and we wish him loads of luck for the future. We also bought a Toys R Us voucher for his two siblings.
Nick got a Gold Medal for 100m butterfly at Sheffield. He comfortably beat his PB and also set PB in 50m crawl. He also has had two 6th places, two 5th places, one 4th and of course his first place.
An update on Nick - Nick competed against many paralypians from around the world at the British International Disability Swimming Championships in Sheffield in April. Nick came a very creditable 14th in 100 back,17th 50f/s and 19th in 100f/s. Nick also features on the County website and Lewes Swimming Club website and a magazine for amputees called STEP FORWARD.
