Kingston Upon Hull Swimming Club’s S14 Para Swimmer Owen Garsides returns to the pool after all Para meets were cancelled due to the lockdown.
Owen will compete in the British Para Swimming Winter National Meet held in Wales in 11-12th December. Owen qualified for all his 7 races to be able to compete at this National event. He is looking forward to swimming in the National pool in Swansea.
Owen said ‘ it was a difficult time for me not able to train during lockdown.’ ‘My parents supported me by buying me a put up large pool for the garden which held 8000 litres of water which enabled me to attach a swim bungee to myself and gave me the opportunity to keep my training up everyday during the lockdown period.’‘
I am now looking forward to this event In Wales and hopefully improve my times in my races and take my Para swimming further.’
