Introduction I have been a swimmer since the age of 4 years old, representing my Town (Bury St Edmunds), County (Suffolk)and Country (England). I was the County record holder for 14/15 years old 100 Metres freestyle, county champion for 14/15 years old 100 Metres Backstroke, and Suffolk Champion for 100 Metres freestyle in 1983. In the summer of 2006 I decided to take up Masters and open water swimming as part of an attempt to swim the English Channel. On July 10, 2007 I achieved this and became the 873rd person in history to swim the English Channel. On September 11-12, 2008 I repeated this feat and became only th 84th person in history to swim it twice. Also in 2008 I completed another lifetime goal of representing my country when I competed in two FINA World Cup Open Water Grand Prix in Serbia and Mexico respectively.
