Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the year
After a challenging 2021 we wanted to round the year off with some good news stories. We asked all of our Swimming Teachers to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.
They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes (children and adults) who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers. They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging.
Lewis Briggs - Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2021
Nominated by his teacher Sara Buttfield
"Lewis has been coming swimming for over 10 years and has completed all the levels, but still continues to come swimming even though he will turn 18 shortly and will no longer be able to do so. He completed his GCSE PE with swimming and he has been a role model to everyone in his class!
Well done Lewis"
