We are delighted to announce that our sponsored swimmer William Bell, has been selected to represent Team GB by the British Olympic Association as part of the 16 strong Junior squad competing at the Győr 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival. Congratulations William #sponsoredathlete #juniorolympics #Gyor2017
The Festival will see a total of 50 British athletes compete alongside around 3,000 athletes from 50 European nations come together to compete across 10 Olympic sports from 23rd-29th July.
Team GB’s athletes, who will all be aged 14-17 at the event, will compete in various events including swimming in Hungary.
With many athletes already working on the road to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, EYOFs play an important role in the development of young British athletes and help them along the route to achieving their own Olympic dreams.
Athletes like Becky Adlington & Pete Kennaugh had their first taste of an Olympic-style event at an EYOF before winning an Olympic medal at senior level.
