Still time left to nominate yourself as an unsung swimming star

Share this page

Families who love to swim still have the chance to join Britain’s top aquatic athletes in the pool and receive a national award at a celebratory ceremony. All you have to do is put yourself forward in the next few days!

Nominations for the Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic Awards close on 31st August 2010 but the ASA are still looking for people like the Owusu-Agyemang family who took the Swim4Life Family Swim Award last year.

In 2009, Francis and Akuso Owusu-Agyemang and their three children, Keiron, Declann and Aaron accepted the gold Swim4Life Family Swim Award from the stars of British Swimming past and present after their story impressed the judges.

Dad Francis was very passionate about Declann and Kieran being able to swim and he would often encourage the boys at poolside by copying the actions of swim teachers to help aid their progress.

Then one day Francis admitted he couldn’t swim and, as he had never learned, he couldn’t understand how difficult it was for the boys. So he enrolled onto an adult lesson programme with his wife Akuso, and the whole family are progressing really well together, even baby Aaron.

If you think you have a family success story like the Owusu-Agyemangs, or you just enjoy swimming together and fancy the chance of being invited to a special awards ceremony in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire on the 20th November 2010 please let us know why you think you should win the award.

 There are ten categories for the Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic 2010. These are:

  • Young Swimmer of the Year
