A Year 13 student at West Hatch High School has been nominated to represent Great Britain in the Deaflympics 2017.

Kieran Holdbrook is awaiting confirmation of his inclusion in the squad for Turkey next year after competing in a GB selection and training weekend at the London Aquatic Centre.

Kieran, who swims in the 1,500m front crawl, is coming to the end of his two-year BTEC Sports course at the High Road school.

Kieran said: “I am very excited at the opportunity to represent Great Britain yet again and am looking forward to visiting Turkey for the first time to compete. 

"My main goal is to reach the finals.”

The school's Head of PE, Mrs Coralie Reid, said: "We are so proud of Kieran’s achievements: he is extremely unassuming both with his swimming and his attainment on the BTEC Sport course.

"He is excelling on the course and is on track to reach a Distinction grade.”

She added: "The other four boys on the BTEC course are very supportive of Kieran’s achievements: they are an enthusiastic group who are coming to the end of their two-year qualification."

Kieran is looking to go to university to study Physical Education with the ambition of becoming a PE teacher.

In August last year Kieran competed in the World Deaf Swimming Championships in Texas where he broke the British U16 200m Butterfly record, came fourth in the relay and seventh in the 1,500m.

In 2014, Kieran represented Great Britain in the European Deaf Swimming Championships in Russia.
