Poppy Leaman recently attended weekend
training with the Great Britain Deaf Swimming Club at the
London Aquatics Centre..
This was such an amazing opportunity for Poppy to be able to train amongst Deaflympians and be part of those aspiring to represent Team GB in the deaflympics in the future in the pool which hosted the olympics in 2012.
It was great to meet some inspiring deaf role models and to be “normal” amongst a squad of swimmers who all experience hearing challenges.
It has been a pleasure to witness Poppy’s growth in confidence as a result of this weekend.
