Gabriel Oyaide-Nicholls (Nottingham Leander and NOVA Centurion swimmer) is well known in the Nottinghamshire swimming community not only for his swimming but for his amazing hair.
On Saturday 2nd March, to raise money for a charity very close to the family, Gabriel was sponsored by lots of people inside and outside the swimming world to have all of his locks chopped off. Gabriel went to Flint’s barbers in the city with some of his swimming friend for support and made a celebration out of it.
Altogether Gabriel has raised a total of £854.55 which is a massive success and way over his initial target of £500. Lisa (Gabriel’s mum) has said she is “extremely proud of him”, along with all of his friends in Nottinghamshire swimming.
