Holly swims to success

Last week Swindon’s very own Jazz Carlin swam the best 400m freestyle of her career to win a silver medal at the Olympic Games in Rio.

Our very own Holly Sullivan wins three gold, one silver and one bronze in the Down’s Syndrome European Open event. She entered six individual events and the 200M relay. Holly won three gold, one silver and one bronze medal.


Holly, now 12, has been learning to swim since she was four years old and is a regular attendee at the fortnightly Monday night Swindon Down’s Group swimming sessions at the Thamesdown Hydrotherapy Pool on a Monday evening from 6-7pm. . Her family and the Group are extremely proud of her.
