Budding Olympian appeal for cash to make dream happen
Robert Iddiols

A budding Olympic swimmer says his dream is 'floundering' if he doesn't raise some cash to help him train more.

Windsor Swimming Club member Robert Iddiols finished fourth in the 50m Freestyle event at the British Championships in March, but missed out on selection by six tenths of a second.

The 22-year-old still has one last chance to make it on to the team when the Olympic trials take place in June, but needs to raise £3,000 to cover his training and living costs.

He said: "I am putting all my eggs into one basket to try and qualify and there is still a chance with one spot left on the team.

"Without it I am floundering and to make it a reality I need the money so I can train more and make my Olympic dream happen."

The part-time bar-man, who trains at Windsor Leisure Centre in Stovell Road, has been short-listed by the British Olympic Association as a potential qualifier for London 2012.
