UKSA have agreed this morning in, conjunction wit DSS-GB, to send a team to the INAS World Swimming Championships in Mexico between 27th November and 4th December. Furthermore they have allocated a para development officer to work with DSS-GB. This makes us part of a structure with many bodies in the UK and abroad and gives us a fantastic voice for Down syndrome swimming in para sports.
UKSA have gained an extension for entry and a possible reduction on criteria for Down syndrome swimmers but no change on qualification times.
We hope you can see this is a massive step forward in our aim to get our swimmers where they rightly belong – in the Paralympics.
