SportsAid announces shortlist for prestigious One-to-Watch Award


SportsAid has today announced the shortlist for its prestigious One-to-Watch Award which was last year presented by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, the charity’s Patron, to skeet shooter Amber Hill.

Other notable recipients from recent years include diver Tom Daley, sprinter Jodie Williams – now the British number one over 200m – and gymnast Courtney Tulloch, who this year competed at the world championships alongside Max Whitlock and Kristian Thomas, who jointly presented him the award back in 2012.

The shortlist of ten was drawn up by judges from Sport England, UK Sport, the English Institute of Sport, BBC Sport and SportsAid – chaired by Olympian Sarah Winckless – from 1,300 young sports people across the UK who have received financial support from SportsAid this year. These ten athletes represent Britain’s brightest prospects for the future with two junior world champions, one senior world champion, one double world record holder and a string of remarkable performances among them.
