Bruce wins Kettering Disability Sports Personality of the Year
Bruce Dee, Year 8 at Stamford School, has been awarded the title of Kettering BC Disability Sports Person of the Year, for his phenomenal swimming achievements.

In the summer, he scored high placings competing at the Swim England National Summer Championships in Sheffield. The early spring brought a fantastic seven medals in the S6 category at the Junior National Para-Swimming Championships in Sheffield. The British Para-Swimming International meet in Glasgow then brought a 4th place position in the mixed classification open age 50m Butterfly final.
Bruce enjoys studying mathematics and physical education at Stamford School, with badminton and tag rugby quoted as his favourite sports, following swimming.
Up against three other talented para-athletes, Bruce expressed his surprise at winning the sports personality award: “It was a great night with lots of awards going to lots of brilliant athletes. I was very shocked to win, and I’m looking forward to going to the Northamptonshire Sports Awards in November!”
