​Rio Day deserves to be a success for Ollie and Charlotte

Rio Day deserves to be a success for Ollie and Charlotte

This weekend is a great opportunity for everyone in Mansfield to congratulate two of the area's greatest sportspeople – and I hope it's something that the people of the town fully embrace.

The achievements of our Paralympic swimmers, Ollie Hynd and Charlotte Henshaw, not just this year at Rio but what they have now achieved over a long period of time, is something truly to be proud of.

Both have nurtured their talents as part of the Mansfield Nova team, coached by Glenn Smith, and with Ollie bringing home two gold medals and one silver from Brazil whilst Charlotte added a bronze to her collection, the town continues to be a hotbed of swimming talent.

Both of them will be in Mansfield Market Place on Saturday lunchtime where, hopefully, they will get a rousing reception from a proud town.

The only disappointment is that it coincides with a lunchtime game for Mansfield Town at home to Grimsby Town which may dent numbers.

But, Ollie and Charlotte must be left in no doubt that Mansfield is thoroughly delighted with what they've achieved and what they can hopefully achieve in the years to come.
