Slimming and swimming: healthy news from the UK and Portugal

While this is a great story from the UK about a woman with Down syndrome having the determination and persistence to lose a lot of weight, with the support of her sister, the photos are a particular delight. She looks very pleased with herself, as well she might!

And on another health and fitness note, the 4th International Down Syndrome Swimming Championships are just coming to completion in Portugal after five days of elite competition, and three years of preparation. Check the Down Syndrome Down Under Swimming Organisation's website for Team Australia's fabulous results, and the International Down Syndrome Swimming Organisation's site for all the results. Well done all round!
