Description Almost 2,000 swimming pools could be lost forever by the end of the decade unless the Government and local authorities ‘act now’ to replace or refurbish ageing facilities. Swim England's new "A Decade of Decline: The Future of Swimming Pools in England" report warns that there will be a huge reduction in the amount of water space available by 2030, which could threaten the future of aquatic sports in some areas and leave millions shut out of the activities they love. https://bit.ly/3zMyCdU

Suzanna Hext - Adversity, Determination and Stubbornness

Suzanna Hext - Adversity, Determination and Stubbornness

This episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast features Tokyo Paralympian Suzanna Hext. For those who don't know much about Suzanna's story, in 2012 she became wheelchair-bound after being paralysed in an equestrian accident. Since that moment she has gone on to represent Great Britain with esteem at both Para-Equestrian and Para-Swimming, winning international honours in both sports including a Silver and Bronze at the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships in London. She's the British Record holder in the S5 50 and 100m Freestyle SC and SB4 100m Breaststroke and recently competed at the Tokyo Paralympics finishing in fourth in both the S5 100 and 200m Freestyle finals. Suzanna speaks about how London 2012 Paralympics helped her find her identity again after her accident, as well as how swimming came into her life and why her competitive nature drove her to become a member of British Para-Swimming. Suzanna also takes us through her journey to Tokyo which includes one of the worst preparations an athlete could dream of. Ear Infections, Surgeries and Asthma attacks all attempted to derail her, but with a massive helping of determination and stubbornness, she can now call herself a Paralympic Finalist.
