“We are extremely fortunate to have a two amazing swimming clubs in both Ilkeston and Long Eaton, and I hope the excitement of the Olympics will provide the motivation for residents to be #InspiredToTry any of the fantastic sports of swimming, para swimming, diving, water polo, open water swimming or artistic swimming.”
