Jordan truly is UNSTOPABLE!

 

Back in June 2017 we learnt about Jordan’s passion for swimming in our Your Pool video.  We’re proud to announce that Jordan Quinn will be competing at The Cerebral Palsy World Games for August 2018 in Spain! The Games’ emphasis is to provide a development and learning experience to help prepare athletes for future sporting success. Jordan will be competing with athletes from all over the world in 50m & 100m front crawl freestyle, 100m breaststroke and 100m backstroke.

 

In preparation for this competition Jordan has been training over 10 ½ hours per week- even following a recent operation nothing could stop her from getting back in the water...

 

‘…It’s been a 3 year selection process…after Jordan received such great results in her round times  for backstroke, freestyle and breaststroke we couldn’t be more proud. Jordan is really excited to the opportunity she’s been offered to compere. She’s focused, working hard and putting in all the effort’   -Kelly Quinn, Jordan’s Mum

 

Our Active Communities Officer Colby Nicholls-Brown has been working closely with Jordan since she was a beginner. These 1-2-1 sessions helped Jordan develop her strength and confidence in the water; opening the door to Putteridge Swimming Club (PSC) where she’s become a strong competitor. Jordan’s dedication, love and enjoyment of swimming are clear. 

 

‘I feel Jordan is an inspiration to all disabled swimmers either beginning to learn or at elite level. She has grown in confidence even more so over the last 2 years and she is very focused and driven to do her best in all her competitions. This one in particular is even more exciting and a huge achievement. I’m immensely proud of her to be receiving international classification alongside competing in The Cerebral Palsy World Games 2018’ –Colby Nicholls-Brown, Swim Coach

 

We’ll be support Jordan along with her training and cheering her on in this year’s games! Show your support by helping to raise funds and awareness for Jordan’s amazing journey on her just giving page.
