Tom Bosworth has his sights set on a top 10 finish at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. In order to achieve that Tom is looking for funding to allow him to train full time. Skadi Limited made a contribution this morning through Talent Backer to make sure Tom achieved his target before the deadline closed. By way of thanks Tom has kindly offered to give the young race walkers at Blackheath and Bromley Harriers AC some coaching.

Nicolas Corry, Managing Director at Skadi Limited, said “We were glad to have the opportunity to help a local athlete. We are pleased that this has benefited Blackheath and Bromley Harriers’ young athletes, a local club we greatly admire. We truly wish him well.”

Tom holds the 5km British Record, and is Britain’s number 1 20km Race Walker. On the road to Rio de Janeiro, Tom will be looking for a good performance at the 2015 World Athletics Championships in Beijing.
