Text of OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2012 Well Done Dan anD Fran! cOTTENHAM LOcKS ANd KEyS – Mobile locksmith....

  • ISSUE NUMBER 131

    Well, the Olympics and Paralympics were a resounding success. We can breathe a collective sigh of relief that the games went very well and none of the things that could have derailed everything happened.

    One of the most striking features of London 2012 has been the enormous success of the Paralympic Games. Never before has that event attracted the following and coverage that happened in London. So it was great that Dan West of Cottenham, who has competed in every Paralympic Games since 1996, was able to compete on home turf and be part of the greatest Paralympic Games ever.

    Over the years, Dan has collected a silver and two bronze Paralympic medals (1996 Atlanta – Shot Putt, Bronze; 2000 Sydney – Discus, Bronze; 2004 Athens – Discus, Silver) as well as a Commonwealth Games Silver (2010 Delhi Shot Putt). He achieved a Personal Best in the IPC Athletics World Championships in New Zealand of 11.37m in the Shot Putt. This throw was a world record but was outdone in the same competition by another world record giving Dan the silver medal.

    Dan credits his parents for helping him get into sport, and enjoys the different types of training and the individual nature of the sport. He has now been competing at

    international level for 15 years. He has every reason to be very proud of all that he has achieved.

    Of course Dan is not Cottenham’s only Paralympian. Now-retired, Fran Williamson has also made a big impact on the world of Paralympic swimming. In her ten years in international competition, Fran won 12 World Championship and 6 Paralympic medals. Fran is the current World Champion in the 50m backstroke (a title she first claimed in 2006 and then again in 2010).

    Both Dan and Fran should be very proud indeed of their commitment and achievements over the years. For the rest of us, it’s wonderful to see local athletes performing so brilliantly on the international stage.

    *** In August, eighty one sound absorbing panels were installed in the Coffee Shop of Cottenham Community Centre. These have made a dramatic difference to the noise level in the shop which was a major obstacle preventing some people from enjoying the otherwise lovely setting and beverages in the shop. We think that the panels blend in nicely with the overall décor in the shop and don’t detract from the ambience. Why not pop in and assess the difference for yourself?
