classified as 59, and from now been classified as s9, and from number one in the world he is struggling to qualify and it is undoubtedly taking its toll. my own perception of myself and my self—worth was kind of two intertwined with that me as a swimmer if that makes sense. so when that was kind of ripped away, everything went with it. over the last year that has been the main thing that i've had to deal with and i have found myself a little bit and get some of that self belief back. the paralympic swimming team. ollie hynd was not the only british swimmer affected, a number of medal winning heroes have taken early retirement following a change to the classification. they have found it difficult as well and i'm kind of last man standing, really, so i feel a responsibility to keep going and keep trying to push through and not
kind of let it beat me and just make sure that we don't lose too many people from the sport because that is something that we need to be aware of, but just is something that we need to be aware of, butjust the welfare of the athletes, that needs to be at the athletes, that needs to be at the forefront of everything, really. which i don't think has been the case for the last couple of years. it was announced last week that london will host the para— swimming world championships which will be a much—needed boost for the british tea m much—needed boost for the british team but for ollie hynd it will be maybe too much too soon as he focuses on the long game before tokyo. natalie tax reports. lyon may be the most successful female side in the champions league having won it five times in total and three times consecutively but chelsea still very much believe they are in this tie. they got an away goal courtesy of
erin cuthbert and had a missed penalty by fran kirby, several missed opportunities and their manager anna hayes believes that chelsea can still cause lyon some problems on sunday. they are human, they have errors in them, they can make mistakes like the rest of us, they are not infallible. they can be outworked, they can be outrun. and we have qualities that can hurt them. the importance on sunday was merely that we win the tie. that is the only important part. we are in it, we got an away goal and it is 0-0 it, we got an away goal and it is 0—0 again. and we have to do it at a much higher level than we did it on sunday if we are to make the champions league final. an english tea m champions league final. an english team in the champions league final would make europe sit up take notice. we have seen some bumper crowds for domestic football in europe this season and the french
league is about to have its first female referee, and that is something that anna believes is coming to england soon. something that anna believes is coming to england soonlj something that anna believes is coming to england soon. i can honestly say that sian massey is the best lines person by a country mile. she is outstanding every time i watch her. it will be a matter of time, much as it is a matter of time before there is a female coach in the men's game. great -- grit, determination and work were words used by chelsea striker karen carney today. they clearly feel that they have got plenty to throw at lyon, and they are confident of upsetting the odds at kings meadow. voting is now open for this year's bbc women's footballer of the year award. the award is in its fifth year and we're hearing from all five nominees over the course of the week. today is the turn of a star striker — australia and chicago red stars' sam kerr is now the all time top

the team out as captain for the first time was pretty amazing also. my first time was pretty amazing also. my sporting hero is lebronjames. i love that he has been so consistent over $0 love that he has been so consistent over so many years. love that he has been so consistent over so many years. it is tough to play so well when there's so much pressure on you. i don't get sta rstruck pressure on you. i don't get starstruck but i met serena williams the other day and i was really nervous before because obviously she is the greatest athlete of all time probably, male or female, is the greatest athlete of all time probably, male orfemale, she is right up there. she was chill, we taught, we chatted and hung out, so i think serena williams may be the most nervous part i still was not starstruck. i had sweaty palms before! i think my favourite celebration is definitely the backflip. i can't always do it, but when it comes out it is good for a photo. i am only one player, and my life has changed a little bit. there
