Backing The Best helping to level the playing field for young talented athletes
14 May 2018

The ground-breaking Backing The Best programme continues to make a huge difference to the next generation of sporting talent as Olympic silver medallist Keri-anne Payne, Team GB weightlifter Zoe Smith and inspirational ironman John McAvoy helped the 2018 cohort develop new skills and provided them with expert mentoring at a special SportsAid workshop hosted earlier this month (3 May).

SportsAid's Athlete of the Month - Reuben Arthur, 21, from London
30 Apr 2018

There was no doubt in Reuben Arthur’s mind that Team England would return from the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games with a gold medal in the men's 4x100m relay. Yet not in his wildest dreams could he imagine standing at the top of the podium himself having run the opening leg in the final. In fact, he didn’t even expect to be stepping foot in Australia until he received a call-up less than a fortnight before the start of the Games.

SportsAid athletes return 139 medals from Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games
16 Apr 2018

SportsAid athletes had huge success at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games with 139 medals – 40 gold, 54 silver and 45 bronze - won across 18 sports. The charity’s recipients contributed to 61% of the podium finishes delivered by the Home Nations during 11 days of world-class action. Swimming saw the best return for SportsAid athletes with 25 medals celebrated at the Optus Aquatic Centre.

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.
