Who's Coming?

How I started:

I started when I was around 4 years old, it was when I was jumping around the house too much so my parents decided to take me to a trampoline club, from there I continued the hobby and moved around to a. Few different clubs after coaches recommending I go to them, but I eventually found Tumbling at eight years old. I began competing around 11 years old, so I was training in the evenings for three days a week and in school every weekday.

My Greatest Achievement:

My greatest achievement is my individual world silver medal in the Junior category, it was my third world championships as I had previously been to Japan in 2019 to compete in the Junior world championships over there, but it was in 2021 where I medalled on the world stage for the first time in Azerbaijan. When it came to 2022 it was my last year as a junior athlete, so I had an expectation for this event because I wanted to do well that year and finish my junior career off with a medal at the biggest competition of the year. When I put the run to my feet in front of the crowd I remember feeling frustrated as I was the favourite to win that competition as I had qualified in first, but had to change my run slightly. It was still a very difficult run, but I was happy to have landed safely without falling onto my face and then earning a silver medal!

My Greatest Challenge:

My greatest challenge was 2023 overall, it was a step up into a much more difficult category, competing against athletes that I have looked up to all my life, so it was an extremely difficult step up. The first competition I attended as a senior was the World Cup in Portugal. I had no expectations for that competition and my coach was competing alongside me which gave me a lot of confidence, I was putting out a lot of great runs and landing on my feet, but I had gone from feeling like I was competitive and fighting for the podium to being the newbie.

My Hobbies:

Outside of Gymnastics I spend my days at college, I am quite an artistic and creative person. I study Product Design and Art and this lets me explore the creative side of my away from Gymnastics.

My Future Aspirations:

In the future I want to achieve individual success as a senior gymnast as I have had team success, but I want to show that I can do it myself to the people that I have looked up to throughout my life.

Who are Sports for Champions?

Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Your young people have been invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspiring them to be the champions of tomorrow.

While we're not all athletically inclined, we strongly encourage participation, all young people have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! 

After 12 years of success we have perfected our inspirational events and they are guaranteed to deliver for your school and pupils! 

Sports For Champions events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. Sports For Champions is an audited organisation that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. Meaning you can support the initiative with assurance.1697470986_international_school_milan-04.jpg

What will happen on the day?

During the assembly, Sports For Champions athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, Sports For Champions envision young people developing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded participants in society.

Alongside Team Sports For Champions, athletes engage in invaluable work within local communities to support their training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.

Sports For Champions offers schools the benefit of an additional funds to go towards resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.

Livingstone Road Junior School will be receiving an inspirational visit from workshop with Junior world silver medalist tumbling Champion Fred Teague on the 3rd of July 2024 and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from physical activity through our fitness circuit, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.

Where does the money go?

When parents and guardians offer their support to a Sports for Champions UK (CIC) fundraising event, they are nurturing not only their children's immediate environments but also the bright futures of many rising athletes. Here is a breakdown of how your contributions make a significant difference: 

For each fundraising event Sports For Champions looks to raise enough money to cover the costs that it takes to provide such an excellent service nationally. Once that goal is reached, surplus funds are allocated in a way that benefits both the school and our passionate athletes – 60% for the school’s continued growth and 40% contributing to the athlete fund.

At the core of the Sports For Champions UK (CIC) initiative is the Athlete Fund. Primarily, the fund aids schools in less economically privileged areas that might struggle with costs, ensuring that the administrative fee isn’t a barrier to vital opportunities. Additionally, it assists our dedicated athletes in moments of pressing need, whether it’s recovering from injuries, procuring advanced equipment, or embarking on warm-weather training camps. Our fundamental belief remains unwavering: no school should be compromised for its economic stance, and every promising athlete deserves a fair shot at excellence. Our commitment ensures no child or school is left behind due to circumstances beyond their control.

Challenges Athletes Face: Our partnering pro athletes and Team GB Olympians have a world of responsibilities on their shoulders. They juggle between a rigorous training schedule that demands over 35 hours a week and their personal commitments. This often leaves them with limited time and resources to focus on their careers, leading to financial constraints. Expenses for equipment, training, coaching, travel, and more pile up, making it a challenge for these athletes to perform at their best and represent Great Britain.

Why is this important?

Livingstone Road Junior School is promoting health and wellbeing throughout the school and with the help of a visit from Fred Teague, this will be enhanced across all year groups and staff, they are also focussing on encouraging diversity and raising the aspirations of the pupils through sport.

Livingstone Road Junior School will benefit from the money raised as they will be able to provide new equipment, fund opportunities for the children, and more.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of workshop with Junior world silver medalist tumbling Champion Fred Teague and to raise funds for key resources for Livingstone Road Junior School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
