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.
