A SWIMMING-obsessed family have made a splash by winning a top sports family award.

The Lynch family, from Stowmarket, were named runners-up in the family of the year category at the 2011 Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic Awards, in Sheffield, on Saturday.

Kim, a swimming instructor, and Peter, a part-time swimming instructor, were acknowledged for their dedication to the sport. They get up at 4am to drive their sons, Troy, 20, and 17-year-old Aaron to training.

The Suffolk College students are also swimming instructors at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre and compete for Team Ipswich.

Kim said: “It’s lovely to be acknowledged for what we do as a family. Everything is centred around swimming.”
