I had the absolute pleasure to interview Adam and he shared so much advice for our young athletes including how to incorporate daily habits to improve performance, how he manages his "chimp" brain to help in training and racing, how to deal with injury and setbacks as well as how to deal with social media and the press. We also talk about the importance of values, staying grounded and having fun as a young athlete.
Emsea are proud sponsors of CASS & Friends. Founded in 2004 as a laser cutting company predominantly producing flat parts, the company has now grown into a full subcontract fabrication company. Emsea now produces a wide range of welded, formed, and machined parts for many sectors of the economy ranging from beautiful decorative panels to frames and brackets for productions lines.
Emsea’s directors, Chris Sweet and Mark Causer have first-hand experience in the laser machine tool industry and have worked for several of the leading laser manufacturers in the UK. Chris is himself a passionate triathlete and sportsman and both he and Mark are delighted to be able to help their local community and talented young athletes.
SportsAid and the Cotswold Athletes Support Scheme (CASS) are working together for the benefit of emerging, talented young sports people. It’s a partnership focussed on helping the right athletes at the right time, in the right way.
SportsAid is a national charity with a mission to ‘encourage, enable and empower the next generation of athletes to achieve their ambitions in sport and life.’ SportsAid was founded in 1976 and has since recognised and helped thousands of British athletes to reach their personal best, many of whom are household names such as Sirs Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent, Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins, Dames Katherine Grainger, Kelly Holmes and Sarah Storey and more recently Ellie Simmonds OBE, Christine Ohuruohgu MBE, Dina Asher-Smith, Tom Daley OBE, Adam Peaty OBE and Emma Raducanu MBE.
SportsAid works closely with the various national governing bodies of sport (NGBs), Sport England and UK Sport, to understand the talent pathway environment and direct support and resources to have the greatest impact. Working with the team at CASS, this experience and expertise can help to ensure that local and regional talent can be recognised and supported in the most effective way.
“I’m delighted that SportsAid and CASS are working so closely together for the benefit of young athletes,” said Tim Lawler, chief executive of SportsAid. “Inevitably there are limited resources available each year and it is vital that these are directed as effectively as possible, which is as important for donors and supporters as it is for the beneficiaries. We will work together to ensure this happens.
We are very excited to announce that 4thdiscipline are partnering with CASS & Friends to provide nutrition support to our athletes.
“We are absolutely delighted that Nikki has come on board,” said Fiona Carter.
