Ollie pulls out of Commonwealth Team

Paralympic swimming gold medallists Ollie Hynd and Jonathan Fox have withdrawn from Team England’s Commonwealth Games squad.

The duo have been subject to a recent reclassification as part of new IPC rules that require all para-swimmers to undergo international classification before the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020.

As a result, there is no event for Fox to participate in at the Commonwealth Games, while the decision has led to Hynd focusing on this summer’s European Championships and the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.

Nova Centurion’s Hynd, 23, who won gold medals in the S8 400m freestyle and SM8 200m individual medley at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, said: “My recent re-classification in my main swimming events from S8 to S9 has come as huge shock to me, having not previously been near to an S9 classification in all my years of competing.

“This very difficult news has taken an unbelievable toll on my training and mindset for the Commonwealth Games. With this in mind, I have reluctantly withdrawn from the competition and will not fly out to Australia.

“I would like to wish Team England and the rest of the Commonwealth Countries participating at the Gold Coast, all the very best of luck.”

Ollie Devastated over Reclassification

In the run-up to the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, while at the Copenhagen world para swimming series, Nottinghamshire Paralympic Swimmer Ollie Hynd has been reclassified to a lower classification putting him with more able-bodied athletes.

Ollie is clearly devastated by this news and has said:

“I’m heartbroken and confused as to this week’s reclassification in Copenhagen. Whilst I appreciate that para-sport classification is difficult, it is clear that there are winners and losers to the new processes. Over the next few weeks, both myself and the great team around me will be focusing on the performance framework that will give continued success to Tokyo 2020 and beyond. Finally, I would like to thank you all for your amazing support to this point in my swimming career and let’s look forward now to the challenge ahead!”

Ollie set for Gold on the Gold Coast

Mansfield’s Paralympic swimming superstar Ollie Hynd MBE has been selected for Team England in the forthcoming Commonwealth Games to be held on Australia’s Gold Coast from 4 to 15 April 2018.

This will be Ollie’s second appearance at the Commonwealth Games after winning the Gold medal in the SM8 200m Individual Medley in Glasgow 2014.

Ollie will be competing in the same event in Australia, which is scheduled for Sunday 8 April 2018.

Ollie is the Paralympic, World and European champion and World Record holder in this event, and hopes are high that he can repeat his 2014 Gold medal winning performance and add to his already hugely impressive list of titles, medals and records.

Mansfield District Council’s Swimming Development Officer, Glenn Smith who is Ollie’s coach at Nova Centurion Swimming Club, said: “This is another incredible honour for Ollie, and is testament to his incredible work ethic, drive and ambition, and we wish him every success in Australia. It’s also a great honour for Mansfield District Council, Nova Centurion Swimming Club and Nottinghamshire Amateur Swimming Association, to have Ollie selected for a second time and I’m sure everyone will pass on their best wishes in the coming days and weeks. He’s really looking forward to it and is ready to show the world what he’s capable of once again.”

Cllr Andrew Tristram, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Wellbeing at Mansfield District Council, added: “We are very proud of all of Ollie’s achievements so far and on behalf of everyone at the council and across the district, I would like to wish him the very best of luck at GC2108. We’ll be supporting him all the way.”

Ollie had a fantastic British Summer Championships in July 2017, smashing his own S8 category world record in the 400m freestyle in a time two seconds faster than he swam in the Rio 2016 Paralympic final. This earned him the gold medal in the multi class event and he also posted the number one ranked time in the world this year in the SM8 200m Ind medley, which also earned him the gold medal in the event.
