Brassware and plumbing manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire is supporting a student who plans to compete at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016.
Eighteen year old Kelly Bramhald from Doncaster, who competes in Javelin, has received sponsorship from Pegler Yorkshire.
This has allowed her to fulfil additional commitments this year and compete amongst much admired professionals including Olympic medal hope, heptathleteJessica Ennis.
“I have competed against Jessica twice this season and on the last occasion, my eighteenth birthday, achieved my personal best,” said Bramhald. “She is someone that I really admire and I will continue my training over the next four years to hopefully be able to compete and become an Olympian of Rio 2016.”
Phill Jackson marketing director of Pegler Yorkshire said: “As a company dedicated to developing products of the future and providing solutions to overcome working practice hurdles, we are delighted to offer Kelly our support as she embarks on what should be a glittering career for her.”
“We wish Kelly every success for the future and look forward to seeing her achieve her potential.”
During this summer Bramhald hopes to claim gold at the English Schools Competition and also qualify for the World Junior Championships in Barcelona.
