Eid was shadowing one of our fitness sessions from the neighbouring public lane a while back. While at first I though how cheeky of him he then came and apologised. Didn't I feel dreadful as he explained he was a Syrian Refugee living on £5 per day at the local YMCA and swimming was his escape from the stress of his former war torn life and the chaos of being smuggled to the UK. Recognising his talent, I did not believe he had only recently learned to swim we were keen to take him on. Letters to the IOC, sponsors, training camps to Club La Santa, the United Nations a new world was opening to us both.
