The GLL Sport Foundation is an athlete focussed support programme providing athletes across the UK with tangible support to aid their sports performance. Support includes training membership access to over three hundred venues across the UK, access to physio and injury rehab support and financial awards up to the value of £1,250.
Applications for athletes are open until 20th February 2018 via the website portal – www.gllsportfoundation.org
Across the UK it is projected three thousand athletes will be supported in 2018; it will mark a special milestone for the UK’s largest independent athlete support programme as the programme turns ten years, over which period it will have provided sixteen thousand athlete awards at a value of £9million.
Supported Camden athlete, Dominic Ogbechie (Athletics), who won the Home International Championships for Pentahlon in 2016, setting an overall championship best performance, explained: “My overall goal is to be selected to represent Great Britain in 2020 at the Tokyo Olympic Games. With the help of the GLL Sport Foundation financial support, I hope be able to achieve my ambitions by paying for high-class training sessions and the transportation to and from the arena; as well as the essential kit needed to compete such as spikes, tracksuits and vest tops.”
