TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

"Well its been a real tough year I have to admit!!!  Following a fantastic 2013 with qualifying for European Youth Olympics with Team GB, I came away with a Silver and a Bronze medal in 2 relays and PB’d in all my events.  2014 has been a year with lots of general illness, I seemed to pick up everything and also had various gym injuries. 

My fitness and technique suffered as my training was constantly interrupted.  I hit a low in May, but continued to work as hard as I could determined to get myself back on track.  I went to UK Nationals in Sheffield in August and although I didn’t PB on my best ever times, I have come away feeling really positive and motivated as every race I swam was a big improvement on where I was in May. 

I am going to Sainburys UK School games in September and have also been selected by the ASA for the Inter Counties in the Autumn.  I am excited to see where this next season takes me,  I have learnt a lot about myself in the last 12 months and want to take this forward.  Fingers crossed for next year.
