The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are fast approaching and many of our UK and Irish athletes have been named on National Programmes. Athletes selected on the programmes are eligible to receive training camp and competition opportunities throughout the season, as well as access to world class sports science and medicine services.

F-Teamers Aimee Willmott and Georgia Coates are no stranger to competing at Olympic level, with both athletes developing through National Programmes in the past. This year, many F-Teamers will be following in their footsteps and training hard for what could be Olympic success.
