We are delighted to have such a strong and growing relationship with SportsAid.

Bluefin Sport is an award winning national provider of insurance and risk management solutions to the world of sport.

They started their relationship with SportsAid in 2012, shortly after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Sharing the passion with the rest of the nation, they were inspired by Team GB's and ParalympicsGB's achievements during the Games and wanted to build upon the legacy by becoming more actively involved in supporting young talent.

They recognised that many young athletes are heavily reliant upon the financial support from their families and that they dedicate many hours a week to training alongside their education.

In 2013 Bluefin Sport supported 16-year-old swimmer Ryan West, from Gloucester. He achieved several personal bests in that year and in doing so became the fastest S9 category athlete in the country. As a result he progressed up the talent pathway and selected for the British team. He subsequently went on to receive World Class Podium Potential funding, which means the support SportsAid was able to provide through Bluefin Sport achieved its aim. As a result, in 2015, Bluefin Sport extended their support to help three other SportsAid athletes.

Bluefin Sport Managing Director, Steve McGuinness, said, “We are delighted to have such a strong and growing relationship with SportsAid. I hope that our support will enable our chosen athletes to raise their profiles and give them the necessary encouragement and belief that they can achieve their goals of becoming international athletes. It’s nice for us to be able to help with the costs of training and competing at national level in recognition of their emerging talents.”
