SportsAid is proud to announce that 65% of the athletes selected to represent Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games have received financial support and recognition from the charity during their careers. That's 238 of the 366 members of Team GB who were provided with SportsAid awards.

It's an 8% increase on London 2012 where SportsAid athletes made up 57% of Team GB (308 of 541). 20 of Team GB's 29 gold medals in London were won by athletes helped by SportsAid including Jessica Ennis-Hill, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford - the three gold medalists on that magical Saturday night inside the Olympic Stadium.

SportsAid was established in 1976 and is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Throughout the Games, SportsAid will be publishing fresh and exclusive content on www.sportsaid.org.uk, starting with a facts and stats booklet next week. There will be blogs, interviews and regular social media postings across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
