Exeter School is delighted to welcome Paralympian David Hill to coach competitive swimming squads this year.

David is a two-time Paralympian in swimming and triathlon and world and European medallist in swimming.

The British Champion was Team GB's youngest athlete at the Athens 2004 Paralympics and Top 10 Finisher in the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Paralympic Games.

Paralympian David said he felt privileged to add value to the coaching team at Exeter School and pass on his experience and knowledge to the next generation.

“I’m really passionate to provide world class coaching to local young people to support their aspirations and strive to their full potential, an ethos I know Exeter School share.”

Head of Aquatics Gary Robb said David would be leading on the competitive squad, focusing on sprint work and the technical aspects, such as starts, turns and relay skills.

“This will really help fine tune the team for a more competitive edge as we return to full training and a full calendar of events,” he said.
