Biography

Competing at her fourth Paralympic Games in London, 32 year-old Nyree Kindred returned to competitive waters after welcoming her daughter to the world in June 2011

With nine Paralympic medals (two gold, four silver, three bronze) already in the bag hopes were high for the Rhondda's Kindred; and she didn't disappoint. Breaking the Paralympic record in the S6 100m backstroke heats, Kindred qualified fastest for the final and swam to silver. 

Married to fellow swimmer Sascha Kindred, Nyree became a member of the GB team in 1999 and has gone on to become one of Wales' most decorated swimmers.
