16 May 2016

Former Team Bath swimmer Sascha Kindred will compete at his sixth Paralympic Games after being named in a 31-strong ParalympicsGB squad for Rio 2016.

Kindred (pictured) won two gold medals, plus a silver and bronze, at the Sydney 2000 Games while based at the Sports Training Village. That was his second Paralympics, having made his debut at Atlanta 1996, and he has won six titles in total during the past 20 years.

Also heading to Brazil in September are Stephanie Millward and Aaron Moores, who trained with Aquae Sulis Swimming Club in the London 2012 Legacy Pool. Both were medallists at London 2012, with Millward also having won multiple World Championships during her time at the University of Bath.

Ellie Simmonds, a four-times Paralympic champion, will compete in her third Games – she received a honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University in 2013.
