Sascha Kindred OBE

Sascha Kindred OBE is one the most successful British para-swimmers of all time having competed at five Paralympic Games since his debut at Atlanta 1996 and winning 12 medals, including six gold medals.

Kindred has claimed a podium place for Great Britain at every IPC Swimming World Championships since its inception in Malta 1994, remaining a dominant figure on the world stage within the S6 classification.

His most recent Paralympic Games saw him claim a silver in the 200m individual medley SM6 in front of a home crowd at the London 2012 games.

He has proved his consistency in this Paralympic cycle, claiming no less than six medals at the 2014 IPC Swimming European Championships in Eindhoven. A strong performance at the 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships ensures he is selected to ParalympicsGB as reigning World Champion in the 200m individual medley SM6 and a bronze medallist in the 50m butterfly S6.

Outside of Paralympic competition, Kindred has a total of nineteen world championship medals, nine of which are gold. Finally his European haul of medals totals 26, including 14 gold.
