Adam Whitehead - January winner

This Award is presented to Adam Whitehead for his great skills so brilliantly displayed in the swimming pool at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in the year 2002.

His achievements were tremendous. He collected Silver medals in the Men's 100m Breaststroke, and the Men's 4x100m Medley (Relay), but of course his crowning glory was to win the Gold medal in the Men's 100m Breaststroke.

His success has brought personal reward but, in addition, the people of Coventry are justifiably cheered by his performances and take pride in his promotion of the city.
