Become a Team GB patron
In the last few years, Team GB has been on an incredible journey. From the unforgettable home Games in London 2012, to collecting 67 medals and a top two position at Rio 2016. Most recently, Team GB achieved their best ever Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang 2018 and now attention turns to Tokyo 2020.
Athletes who compete at an Olympic Games will have dedicated half of their life to achieving their goal. But they can’t do it alone. Without the investment of their support staff, family, sponsors and the British public their Olympic dreams simply cannot be fulfilled. Similarly at Team GB, without the support of our patrons, we could not take a team to an Olympic Games and prepare a winning environment where athletes can shine and inspire the watching nation.
By choosing to invest in the British Olympic Association – which receives no direct public funding – you are supporting Team GB at the Olympic and Olympic Winter Games, directly enabling our athletes to succeed. You’ll be turning men and women into Olympians and Olympians into our nation’s sporting heroes for generations to come.
Your financial investment is spent in four key areas that are paramount to Team GB’s success.
1. Understanding and planning for the environment – taking the team leaders of each of the national governing bodies to Tokyo to see the environment and map out the key strategies for each sport to aid performance, including nutrition and security
2. Pre-Games training – a world class training camp, one month from the Games this will provide athletes the opportunity to fine tune their preparation and acclimatise to the conditions
3. Games time performance centre – a crucial place for our athletes to train and align their training with their time of competition, outside of the host nation’s provision giving them a competitive edge
4. Satellite accommodation – providing athletes accommodation closer to their competition venues, cutting travel time, increasing rest, training and nutrition time
Your investment in Team GB has an impact that goes beyond the medals and supports sport participation across the UK.
