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.

Tristan Marshall is a 14 years old Nordic Skier from Wembdon, Somerset.

He started Nordic skiing in 2015 and has been a member of the British Nordic Development Squad for around 18 months. He is currently British Under 14 Champion and GB Roller Ski Series Champion.

The GB Roller Ski Series is an event run over the Summer from May to October around GB and the best 5 race results qualify. 

In 18 months competing in U14 age group  Tristan was unbeaten in any race.  This year he moved from 14 to18 age group though, which will be more of a challenge as he will be racing people up to 4 years older than himself.

Due to the lack of snow in UK the GB Squad members tend to train on roller skis, but then go on race camps overseas to train and race on snow.  Most weekends he trains with the English members of the GB Squad in West London.  Tristan was at training camp in Susjoen, Norway the week before Christmas.  He is currently on a race camp in Oberhof, Germany and will go on another race camp in Bruksvallarna, Sweden in April. - http://www.britishnordic.org/

He is working towards qualifying for the European Youth Winter Olympics in Finland in 2021 - http://www.eyof.org/2021-winter-vuokatti/ and the Winter Olympics in Beijing in 2022.
