Blue Peter’s Andy Akinwolere Transformes From Non Swimmer To Swimming Star

One in five children in the UK can’t swim, and you are twice as likely to be a non swimmer if you come from an ethnic minority. Just two months ago Blue Peter’s Andy Akinwolere could not swim a length until he decided to do something about it. He overcame his fear of water by learning to swim and then swam eight kilometers  in one of the most dangerous stretches of ocean; the Marianna Trench. Watch this video and be inspired!
