Success Stories


Ben Rees

The best thing for me about Mansfield Swimming Club is how friendly and competitive everyone is, I really enjoy the atmosphere when everybody is at a competition.

My greatest achievement in swimming so far has to be competing for England at the Cerebral Palsy World Games in 2015. I was really excited to swim my first international and I managed to get a personal best in every heat and final for all six of my events!

What I love about swimming is the freedom water gives me to move around and do things that I can’t do exercising on land.

My swimming hero is six time Paralympic champion Sascha Kindred. This is because of all that he has achieved during his swimming career and it is something that I wish to emulate with my own swimming.

I have been at the club since I was 5 years old. I have always loved trying my best in order to achieve as much as I could as a swimmer. I have always pushed myself hard in training and listened to the advice the coaches give me. I have always found Mansfield to be a friendly club and they have helped me become a level 1 coach and I have been a club captain for the last three years.

I have always done many sports but my passions have always been Swimming and Irish dancing. They have helped me achieve over the years and seem to compliment each other ensuring I have a good fitness level.

My biggest achievement is in the dancing world where I became British Champion in my age group in October 2017. In swimming I have competed in the Midland championships numerous times.
