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.

Jamie has been focussing on finishing his college course and he finished his BTEC Extended Diploma in IT with a triple Distinction. Then he was able to focus on his training, ready to fly to Spain to take part in the CPISRA World Games in August, where he had been selected to represent England󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, and he was delighted to bring home a Silver medal in the 800m.

This was only the start of Jamie’s hard work, as although the season has now ended, Jamie’s next goal was a half marathon, which he had never attempted before. The furthest Jamie had competed in before was a 5k (3miles), this would be 13 miles! 

So a few weeks ago Jamie competed in the Manchester Half, where he came 5th with a time of 1hr 8 mins, crossing the line at the same time as the First Elite Male Runner.
