SWIMMING: JACK’S THE LAD FOR RIO

North Hykeham-based swimmer Jack Burnell may have to contend with cracked ribs and a broken nose as he heads into the 10Km open water race at the Rio Olympics on Tuesday such is the brutality of the event.

The 10km (six miles) race is a relatively new Olympic sport having first been introduced at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Jack qualified for Rio after his fifth-place finish at the World Championships in Russia last year.
