SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
SportsAid athletes are aiming to bring medals home from the Bahamas this week as they represent Team England, Team Scotland and Team Wales at the sixth Commonwealth Youth Games. The Games, which launched in 2000 and have previously been hosted in Scotland, Australia, India, Isle of Man and Samoa, will see 1,300 athletes, aged 14-18, challenging for 94 medals across nine sports.
The World Para Athletics Championships in London have finally arrived! 10 days of action will get underway this evening (14 July) as Great Britain look to follow up on last summer’s track and field success at the Rio 2016 Paralympics Games. Here's a day-by-day competition schedule which highlights when each SportsAid athlete (of which there are 37!) will be competing throughout the Championships.
Current SportsAid athletes Shannon Hylton and Zak Seddon have been named in the 78-strong team set to represent Great Britain at next month’s IAAF World Championships in London. They are joined by 39 members of SportsAid’s alumni, including ‘double, double’ Olympic champion Mo Farah, plus three TASS athletes being supported this year – Callum Wilkinson, Cameron Chalmers and Sarah McDonald.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
