UK Sport joins forces with British Army to discover new Olympic talent

0 0
The Army Elite Sports Programme (AESP) launches using a £1.4m donation the British Army received for providing some of the security at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Olympic Rowing champion Heather Stanning who has combined her elite sport success with a career in the Army is seen as a prime example of the talent that could exist within the ranks.

Captain Heather Stanning said: "Anyone in the Armed Forces has already demonstrated that they're committed, have great teamwork skills and are up for a challenge.

"These are mentally strong people, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes [of the Army Elite Sport Programme] and who emerges, because I think there will be some surprises and that's really exciting."

This new collaboration will reach out into the garrisons and units to identify men and women in targeted sporting disciplines who possess the potential to go all the way to the podium in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and beyond.
