Harry Goes For Gold in Portugal

Stepping Stones for Business has been sponsoring swimmer, Harry James, for over five years. In October 2014, Harry went to Plymouth University to study photography, but also to follow his dream – to train with the Olympic swimming squad.

Last weekend, Harry competed in Lisbon, Portugal, and set personal bests in all of his breaststroke events, winning silver in the 100m breaststroke with a 1.05.3 time; bronze in the 200m breaststroke with a 2.20.8 time and gold in the men’s 4 x 100m individual medley relay, in which the team set a competition record.

Last month, Harry won the Devon County Championships 200m breaststroke in January 2015, with a 10 second lead!

Harry has also been invited to an Olympic training camp in Tenerife in September.

What a brilliant start to the year for Harry, and we continue to support him and are so very proud of all his achievements.
