Applications Open For Sports Foundation Funding

Applications are open for talented young riders across South England to apply for funding for 2013 from the GLL Sport Foundation (GSF) – an independent athlete support scheme set up to support the next generation of emerging talent.

Rising sporting stars have until 20th February to apply for a share of the GSF funding pot of £500,000. At London 2012, GSF saw 56 of its supported athletes compete and 14 win medals – including Olympic boxing gold medallist Anthony Joshua, triple Paralympic swimming bronze medallist Susie Rodgers and Paralympic sailing bronze medallist Alexandra Rickham. With Rio 2016 on the horizon, young equestrians who demonstrate the potential to succeed at International level are invited to apply to help them realise their sporting ambitions.
