Thomas Baxter


Our fourth Deaflympics profile is of British swimmer Thomas Baxter, who is 19. This is his second Deaflympics after becoming a finalist in the 4x 100m Freestyle in the 2009 games in Taipei, Taiwan. Amazingly, Baxter is competiting in 8 swimming events, including the 50m, 100m and 200m Freestyle races. Here, he tells us about his punishing training schedule, and his ambitions at these games. Baxter rates the 2009 Deaflympics as "the greatest experience of my life so far." Can he go one better in Sofia?
