Cameron Vearncombe took part in the British Para-Swimming International Meet at Sheffield between 27-30th April.  He took part in several races the 100 metres Mens' Freestyle and the 100 metres Mens' breaststroke.  Considering that he was one of the youngest swimmers taking part he did really well.  

He has a really bright future ahead of him he is being sponsored by Sport's Aid. Under the banner of "Backing the Best" Cameron will receive up to £5,000  funding to help him develop his potential in the sport, previous recipients have been Mo Farah CBE, Sir Chris Hoy, and Sir Bradley Wiggins, so he is in good company.
