Inspired young swimmer sends good luck message to Paralympian

Five year old Tiernan came along to watch our Winchester Swimming Development Gala in January 2016. Tiernan was so inspired he is now swimming weekly and can’t wait to take part in the next gala. Sascha attended the gala as our VIP and did a question and answer session as well as presenting the medals and certificates to the swimmers. 
Tiernan has now sent us a special message for Sascha Kindred ahead of the Rio Paralympics. Sascha will be competing in his sixth Paralympic Games, having already achieved twelve medals, six of which are gold.
