MAKE A DONATION TO SPORTSAID

Financial barriers pose the main challenge for SportsAid athletes. They receive no funding, other than that from the charity, which means they rely heavily on their parents to cover their training and competition costs. One-off and regular donations can make a real difference.

02 Jul 2020

Judo star Nekoda Smythe-Davis is using her time away from the mat to reflect and have honest conversations as she plots her path towards the Tokyo Olympics next summer. Walsall-based Nekoda is waiting for the green light to signal the return of her sport, with judo still weeks away from resuming given the physical and close-quarter nature of competition. And the 27-year-old feels the lay-off has presented the perfect opportunity to come back stronger.

MAX JORGE: “I WANT TO COMPETE AT THE X GAMES AND OLYMPICS”
18 Jun 2020

Max Jorge initially viewed snowboarding as a form of chilling out with friends, but after a conversation with Olympian Jamie Nicholls, he now has one aim – to become a professional snowboarder. The 15-year-old from St Albans first took to the slopes when he was eight after watching his dad growing up, but within a couple of months the Marlborough Science Academy student was completing tricks from the highest of jumps.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
