Double Paralympic champion trains at Imperial
4 May 2012
British paralympian swimmer Ellie Simmonds (pictured right with Neil Mosley, Assistant Director of Commercial Services), was at South Kensington Campus on 27 March to train in the swimming pool at Imperial’s Ethos sports centre during a trip to London.
“Ellie had used the pool before and decided to come back for a training session,” explained Neil. “She was really engaging and focused on 2012. She signed a few pictures and swimming hats for students and promised to win us a gold medal in July,” he added. Ellie, who is based in Swansea, was the first athlete to set a world record at the new Olympic Aquatics Centre in March.”
