On Saturday the 18th of February it was time to get suited and booted to attend the City of Sunderland Awards Night. I attended these awards with the two Emma’s, my twin sister and my girlfriend. My parents also came along to support the club, as my Dad is the New Chairman.
The awards were held at the Quayside Exchange in Sunderland, the room looked really nice, was lovely to see all my fellow swimmers all dressed up for the evening.
I felt honoured to come away with 2 awards, “Male Swimmer of the Year” and “Performance of the Year”
I was also awarded a Special Award from Danny Thompson, the Head Coach, to recognise my achievements in Rio.
Not only did I receive awards during the evening, but I was privileged to award the Junior swimmers with their awards.
