Mansfield's Paralympic champion Sam Hynd has announced his plans to retire from swimming.
Hynd won a gold and bronze at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games and also picked up a bronze medal at the London 2012 Paralympics.
His gold in the S8 400m Freestyle at Beijing 2008 saw him break the world record - which still stands today.
On his retirement, the 22 year-old said:
"I just felt it was time for a change and a new challenge in my life. I have been competing internationally for almost ten years and I knew I needed a new focus.
“I have loved swimming. It has been my life for so long and brought me so much. I have great friends and I have travelled the world and I have some memories that I will never forget.
“Winning gold in Beijing will be something that will stay with me forever."
The parents of ParalympicsGB swimmers Oliver and Sam Hynd have described the success of their children as "fantastic" and "unbelievable".
