Stephen is Libby Clegg’s younger brother,
Their other brother is James - all 3 at Rio,
Because they all have Stargardt’s Disease,
A deteriorating eye condition that's genetic.
Their mother is Moira who lives in Dumfries,
So they all know the top Royal Blind School,
Which is in Edinburgh and teaches the skills,
Of ironing, washing clothes for their life fine.
Both boys attended a mainstream primary,
But there they did not encourage the talent,
That that they both exposed at swimming,
So the Blind School gave them time, effort.
Stephen was born 23rd November in 1995,
And swims freestyle in the category of S13:
At the Europeans in Portugal’s city Funchal,
He made three finals, set a PB in the 400m.
