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.

After a tough Olympic Trials, 3 months later I raced at the British Summer Championships. I competed in the 100 Breaststroke, 100 Butterfly, 200 Individual medley the 4x200 Freestyle Relay and the 4x100 Medley Relay.

After failing to make the Rio Olympic Team, other opportunities have arisen. I was selected to represent the England South West Team in Croatia for the annual "Golden Bear" Meet.

Tristan competed at the English Short Course Nationals, which were held in Sheffield in December 2015. He swam the 100/200/400 Individual Medley as well as the 200 Freestyle.

This meet was a good marker to see where he was at in his training and whether all those meters and hard work were doing the trick.

He swam very well and secured some life time bests and won gold in the 100 and 200 Individual Medley.
