North Midlands supports an Olympic dream

10 August 2011

Triathlete Lucy Smith from Nottingham is still holding onto her dream of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Thanks to the sponsorship of North Midlands, she has had the financial burden taken off her shoulders and can now concentrate on the important goal ahead.

“I am extremely thankful of the sponsorship as it helps fund my travel and accommodation for the many events I attend which are part of my training programme for the run up to the Olympics next year,” explained Lucy.

Lucy, who is also studying at Loughborough University in Leicester, has just completed the National Senior Elite Duathlon attaining an impressive seventh place taking five minutes off her personal best time of last year when she won the British Junior title. Showing particular improvement in running and cycling, Lucy has a busy schedule ahead and is keeping the pressure on.

Mariana Knight, sales and marketing director for the region, added: “Lucy is testimony to the fact that hard work and commitment pays off and we wish her well in her bid to be part of the Olympic squad for 2012. We will certainly cheer her on.”
