SportsAid's athlete survey confirms costs are going up for young talented sports stars
26 Sep 2017

SportsAid can reveal that the overall average spend on sport annually for young talented athletes has risen by more than £1,500 across the last decade. The results come from the charity’s 10th annual athlete survey and show that it cost £6,417 for each of Great Britain’s finest prospects to fund themselves during 2016/17. That’s a total commitment of over £7 million for the 1,106 athletes supported by SportsAid over the year.

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.
