Cae Tolman: Swims English Channel
Cae Tolman attended Pontypridd High School 22 years ago when it was known as Coedylan Comprehensive School. He achieved three A-Levels at grade A with a distinction in Chemistry; the first person at the school to do this after it became a comprehensive. On leaving there he went on to Leeds University to study Medicine, after graduating worked at Leeds Hospital for a few years before leaving to work in the research department of a drugs company and now lives in Australia.
In July, he came over to swim the English Channel which he succeeded in 13hrs 9min; being only the second person from Pontypridd to achieve this!
