2012 Legacy Boy Kieron Makes Team GB
AFTER watching the torch procession makes it way through Grays, and following the 2012 Olympics on the TV, Kieron asked his mum if he could try out at Thurrock swimming club.
On arrival at Blackshots pool Kieron was asked to swim all four strokes, with no previous swim coaching his Mum explained to the Thurrcok Swimming Club coach that he had never swum butterfly.
Not letting this deter him Kieron explained that he had been watching the Olympics and he knew what to do as he had watched Michael Phelps!
This week see’s Kieron travel to Poland to take part in the Deaf European Swimming championships for Great Britain.
For Kieron this is the culmination of years of training with many early morning training sessions, competitions all over the UK and many GB deaf swimming records to his name.
A pupil at Warren Primary School then St Clere’s with a place a Palmer’s College in September, Kieron has succeeded in a tough sport and we wish him all the best for the European Championships in Poland.
