A WORLD paralympic swimming champion was delighted to visit her relatives in Winsford whilst on an extended break.

Tiffany Thomas Kane caught up with her relations, the Schofield family, at Synetiq on Road Three at Winsford Industrial Estate.

The 18-year-old represents Australia in the 100m breaststroke and was over in the UK for the World Para swimming games in London in September.

She won Gold at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Not only did Tiffany have a chance to see John Schofield, Simon Schofield and Anna Reade whilst on site, she also had the pleasure of meeting Les Elliott of Allianz Insurance Plc.

Allianz sponsored the 2019 London games and is also a major client of Synetiq.
