Hynd withdraws from World Championships
Paralympic Champion Sam Hynd has been forced to withdraw from the IPC Swimming World Championships after failing to recover from a neck injury.
Hynd has had to miss both training and the orientation camp that was held by the British Disability Swimming Team, powered by British Gas, due to his on-going injury problem.
The decision was made that Hynd should withdraw from competition after consultation with the British Swimming medical team, his coach and the National Performance Director. Hynd will remain in the UK to work with medical staff as he continues his rehabilitation from injury.
National Performance Director John Atkinson commented: “We are all disappointed for Sam but I know that he will have the right support at home to help him continue his recovery. I believe that following his rehab work he will return ready for the start of next year’s season earlier and ready for training.”
