SportsAid and the Melton Building Society are excited to be embarking on a new partnership providing talented young athletes in the East Midlands with financial support, recognition and personal development opportunities to help them fulfil their potential. Track and field athlete Kelechi Aguocha, 20, para swimmer Amber Haycock, 13, triathlete Xavi Salcedo, 18, and netball player Millie Van Nierop, 18, are the first beneficiaries of the link-up.
SportsAid is proud to announce that 61% of the athletes selected to represent Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have received financial support and recognition from the charity during their careers! That's 242 of the 398 members (including reserves) of Team GB who were provided with SportsAid awards. SportsAid has published a 'Guide to the Games' full of interesting facts and stats about the charity's alumni competing in Tokyo.
