David Wilkie is pictured with Cheryl Brazendale on his return visit to Spalding in 1979 when memories of Great Britain’s only gold swimming medal in the previous Olympic Games were revived.

It had been three years since David stepped on to the winner’s rostrum to collect his gold medal when he packed Spalding Swimming Pool for his Swimalong with Wilkie session organised by the South Lincs Competitive Swimming Club, of which he is an honorary life member. Three hundred people took part in the swim.
