Coach of an Olympic champion


Jon has been the head coach of Plymouth Leander since he was 19 years old, and after 23 years of graft, sacrifice and considerable measures of both joy and setback, last night he watched one of his swimmers become an Olympic champion.

Ruta is amazing and now set up for life; she will never want for anything again. My brother is just amazing. It's one of those moments where pride as a family member is simply beyond definition.
