Olympic and Paralympic heroes Tom Daley, Katherine Grainger, Rebecca Adlington, Sarah Storey, Ellie Simmonds and Ade Adepitan are urging the British public to show their support for the country's future sports stars in SportsAid’s new Support The Next film.
Tom, Katherine, Rebecca, Sarah, Ellie and Ade, who all received support from SportsAid during the critical early stages of their careers, feature in the film alongside nine of the 1200 athletes currently supported by the charity from across a range of different sports.
Support The Next highlights all the hard work which goes on behind the scenes of a young athlete’s career - the early mornings, the late nights, the sacrifices made to train and compete, each and every day, as they look to become Britain’s heroes of tomorrow.
Support The Next follows SportsAid’s I Will film - launched back in 2012 to capture the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games for young athletes across the country. Both films were directed by Morgan Hutchins and created by Hogarth and Founded.
SportsAid Week takes place from Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October 2017 and is the perfect way to demonstrate your support for the next generation of British sports stars straight after the Rio Olympics and Paralympics. Find out more here.
