PARALYMPICS-BOUND Aaron Moores is still pinching himself after seeing his place at this summer’s London Games rubber-stamped.

The Trowbridge Swimming Club ace, who turned 18 last month, was confirmed in a 44-strong party that also includes clubmate Chloe Davies and Corsham’s Swansea-based swimmer Stephanie Millward.

Moores, who like Davies is trained at Trowbridge by former Australian Olympian Sarah Paton, will go for glory in the S14 100m backstroke and possibly the breaststroke discipline too and recently returned from a two-week training camp in Majorca.

The teenager is also upping his sessions in the gym, splitting his time between the University of Bath and Trowbridge, to make sure he is in tip-top shape for the biggest event of his career.

“I can’t wait until it (the Paralympics) is here,’’ he told the Wiltshire Times. “I never thought I would be in this place and I’ve got to know everyone in the British team.

“My family are proud of me and I want to do the best I can when I get there.

“At the training camp we got some new things to work on and I think my fitness has gone up. I’ll be training really hard for the Paralympics.’’ Moores clocked 1:05.00 when winning the S14 100m backstroke at the British International Disability Championships in Sheffield earlier this year.
