Amber is put through her paces by Olympic Swimming Champion


Amber Disley (level 3) was lucky enough to meet former Great Britain swimmer and “Big Splash” ambassador Duncan Goodhew recently. The opportunity arose when Amber decided to enter this year’s “Big Splash Mile” and was subsequently invited to a coaching session with Goodhew who won the 100m breast stroke gold in the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

Duncan offered tips and advice on training for the mile swim and put the swimmers through their paces during an hour long training session in preparation for the big day. Having already achieved her 5,000 metre distance award, Amber is confident she will complete the mile swim on Saturday 28 April . She has already exceeded her sponsorship target and raised £105 for Sport Relief so far.
