Nottinghamshire’s Ollie Hynd sensationally took down his brother’s five-year-old world record in the men’s 400m freestyle S8 on last night, as his teammates stormed to four golds and two world records at the 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships.
Ollie (4:24.32), who has had his eye on Beijing 2008 champion and brother Sam Hynd’s mark for some time, said: “I wanted to try and get out strong and work that middle 200m where I was a little bit slow this morning, I think I was able to do that tonight.”
“It felt great out there. So far I think it’s been the best meet of my life. I thought I was going to swim fast but you never know and I’m just delighted to have achieved what I have.”
Congratulations Ollie from everyone at Nottinghamshire Swimming.
