Take a five year old from Swindon and place her in the hands of Tigersharks swimming club, there started the dream of Jazz Carlin to become an Olympian.
A long and sometimes tough 20 years later we watch in wonder as she swims her way to 2 Silver medals in the Rio Olympics.
Take a bow Jazz Carlin, you deserve all the applause you are receiving from all over the country.
Swimming is a tough sport and is only for the hardy who seriously want to take it as far as they can. Jazz has had her battles and disappointments but she has never given up and always pushed on.
She is truly an inspiration to all around her and especially the swimmers in Tigersharks who she visits regularly. We congratulate you, from all of us at Tigersharks, we are so proud to call you one of our own and a member of our club.
