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.

I have recently returned from a preparation series of meets in Monaco, Canet and Barcelona where I swam tough, in heavy training, amidst great international competition, all preparing for the upcoming World Championships in Gwangju South Korea at the end of July.

I’m delighted to report that following the British Championships in April in Glasgow, I have been selected as part of Team GB to compete at the World Championships. This is following a season’s best performance in the 200m Freestyle, where I finished 5th in an extremely stacked field. This gives me the opportunity to compete for Great Britain in the 4 x 200m freestyle relay team up against the very best in the world. This gives be great confidence, just a year out from the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. I will now have a short spell in the UK before travelling to Japan for a holding camp prior to the World Championships in Gwangju. I am very much looking forward to the opportunity and would like to thank TS5C for their continued support.
