Joseph Schenk

Assistant coach

I first started swimming competitively aged 11 at St. Austell Sharks. I really enjoyed swimming competitively and in 2010 I moved over to Newquay Cormorants. With lots of hard work, in 2013 I was selected onto the GBR Para-swimming world class podium potential programme. In 2014 I was selected to represent GBR at both the IDM Berlin international meet and National Paralympic day 2014 dual in the pool event; GBR vs Europe. My highest world ranking I achieved in Para-swimming was 14th in the world for the 100m breaststroke and 200m IM in 2013. In that same year (2013), I set British Para-swimming records in the 4×100 Freestyle and 4×100 IM relays. I have won medals at national level in breaststroke, freestyle and IM. In 2015 I stopped competing at both international and national level in 2015 to explore other opportunities in life. I did continue to train and compete at a local level till 2017. In 2017 I started to volunteer coach at Newquay Cormorants and did this up to August 2018. In September 2018 I joined St. Austell Sharks as a volunteer coach and in September 2019 I was appointed as the Assistant coach for St. Austell sharks.
