Did you know?

  • Sascha is married to fellow Paralympic swimmer Nyree (nee Lewis) and their first child Ella was born in July 2011.
  • One of Sascha's biggest passions away from swimming is football and in particular Manchester United. In fact, he's such a United fan that he chose the club's modern history as his specialist subject when he took part in Celebrity Mastermind.
  • That show wasn't his only TV appearance - he was on the winning team in an episode of A Question of Sport in 2010.

Sascha's Career

Having competed at four Paralympic Games, Sascha is one of the most experienced and most successful British Paralympic swimmers of all time. After winning SB7 100m Breaststroke silver on his debut at Atlanta 1996, he won the SB7 100m Breaststroke and SM6 200m Individual Medley double at Athens 2000. He's been untouchable in those two events since, winning every World and Paralympic title available except for at the 2010 World Championships where he chose not to compete in the breaststroke event.
