Boxing sensation Caroline Dubois, 17, has been named as the winner of SportsAid’s prestigious One-to-Watch Award at the charity’s annual SportsBall, sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada, this evening (15 November). She was presented with the award by Greg Rutherford after an outstanding year which saw her win gold at the Youth Olympic Games, the Youth World Championships and the European Youth Continental Championships.
SportsAid’s annual SportsBall has been an ever-present in the British sporting calendar since the 1970s. This will remain the case, but as explained by Tim Lawler, SportsAid’s Chief Executive, the SportsBall will be taking on a new look and feel. There will be more opportunities for the wider SportsAid family to play their part as the charity celebrates the wonderful achievements of the country’s brightest young sporting talent.
To call 2018 a record-breaking year for Calvin Tarczy would be an understatement. The 18-year-old rower would need more than two hands to count the number of achievements, titles and times that he has notched up across the last 12-months. The Londoner secured the much-revered schools triple in addition to gold in the men’s coxless four at the FISA World Rowing Junior Championships for the second year running.
With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
