Junior world champion, Junior European Championships silver medallist and now a Youth Olympian – it’s been a 12 months to remember for rising taekwondo star Aaliyah Powell. Add in a nomination for SportsAid’s prestigious One-to-Watch Award and the Huddersfield teenager is riding the crest of a wave as she looks to continue her upward trajectory. The 16-year-old has just returned from the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires last month.
The year simply won’t stop giving to Stalbridge para-triathlete Hannah Moore and her latest triumph is to be nominated for SportsAid’s prestigious One-to-Watch Award. Hannah, 22, captured national headlines and imaginations after winning PTS4 gold at the European Championships on the two-year anniversary of a life-changing leg amputation which eventually led to her taking up para-triathlon.
SportsAid is delighted to reveal the 10 athletes on the shortlist for this year’s One-to-Watch Award. The winner will be announced at the charity’s SportsBall, sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada, in London on Thursday 15 November. The annual award was launched in 2006 and looks to shine a spotlight on the outstanding achievements of Britain’s brightest young sporting prospects.
