Welcoming home a Stockport World Champion

by Iain Roberts on 2 August, 2011

I took my daughter* to Manchester Airport this morning and we welcomed home our Stockport swimmers, back from the World Championships in China.

Keri-Anne Payne (below) returned from winning Gold in the women’s 10km swim, to see her newborn niece for the first  time.

Stockport has (if I’ve counted right) 14 olympians and para-olympians, including a very strong group of swimmers at the Stockport Metro club.  We’re looking forward to cheering them on at London 2012 and hopefully seeing a bunch more medals making their way up here.

* neither of the people in the photo is my daughter, I should add.
