"Ross was a very nice young man, he was a great role model who stayed longer than his allotted time. Ross also took time to speak to individuals and had a massive impact on them!"
Ian Brown, Lincolnshire School Games
Ross had his first win in the swimming pool aged eight and only really started swimming because his older brother, Ashley, could swim. In 2006 Ross, freestyle swimmer and Double Commonwealth Games Gold medalist, won the acclaimed BBC East Midlands Sports Personality of the Year, an award that was won in 2005 by Derbyshire-born yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur. He was also named Sportsman of the Year at Bath University in 2004. Ross was a member of the Loughborough University swimming club.
Ross helped to make an impact on young people’s lives and raise aspirations whilst working on the Sporting Champions programme, and is now looking to inspire your audience by sharing his secret of what it takes to be the best you can!
