SEA/PL001 BETH FRENCH
Beth French is an elite athlete without the elite bank balance ... so far, totally self-funded, she has trained and funded her solo swim of the English Channel and became the first British woman to swim the treacherous Kaiwi Channel in Hawaii - a feat that took twenty-four hours of non-stop swimming. Her swim was filmed for Hawaiian Xtreme Sports TV. Beth is looking for sponsorship to take her to the next level: swims that have never been done before. This summer, 2014, she is attempting to swim the twenty-six miles from Cornwall to the Scilly Isles - and her main drive is to tackle the Ocean Seven list in one year. She discovered her steely determination and unique version of humour under duress by overcoming ME. Suffering from the age of ten years old, she was in a wheelchair at seventeen. For Beth, water is where the world makes sense and she is fond of saying (over and over on her marathon swims ...) "It's not over till I run out of water". Sponsors can expect to be tweeted and blogged about, with corporate links on her website and sport media platforms, and she is an accomplished speaker about becoming your own hero, time and effort management and her 'life less ordinary'. For these or other opportunities, please contact her. "Any drop in the ocean will help! Many thanks for your consideration". Contact: Beth French. Address: 5 Fairfield Terrace, Milverton TA4 1QX.

ROBERT SIRCUS - GB BIATHLETE

GB biathlete Robert Sircus is from Kincraig, in the Highlands of Scotland, youngest member and one of only two civilians in the Great Britain Senior Biathlon Team. "I have won GB Championships at Youth (U18) and Junior (U21) levels in both Biathlon and Cross-country skiing and have represented Great Britain at events including the International IBU Cup Series, the IBU World Youth/Junior Championships and the IOC European Youth Olympic Winter Festival. I have won GB Rollerski titles at all levels. I also study Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, where I receive help in combining my studies with training for international sporting competition through a programme for selected elite athletes. I have now trained for my sport in Scotland and abroad for ten years, under the guidance of my coach, Mike Dixon, MBE, BEM, himself a six-times Olympian. I left Kingussie High School in 2013 with top grades at Higher and Advanced Higher levels. I then spent a year in Norway alongside junior Norwegian biathletes aiming for selection to their own Olympic and World Championship winning team with training led by the Norwegian National Team Coach. I competed at events in Norway, taking top 10 places at local and regional level and a top 20 place at the U19 National Championships. This season I will return to international competition in the IBU Cup, whilst targeting qualification for the Elite IBU World Cup series. In January, I will represent Great Britain at the World Junior Biathlon Championships and I have also already achieved the qualifying standard for the Senior World Championships. At my first IBU Cup Event in Austria last winter, I came within 2% of the qualifying time for the IBU World Cup, pinnacle of the sport. The British Biathlon Union reported that "Sircus Stars in Debut at Obertilliach". My shooting performance at the next event in Poland was then described as "Inspirational", when I was one of only six International Biathletes in a field of 115 to score a maximum 100% shooting score in conditions affected by heavy rain and wet snow. I train at Glenmore Lodge near Aviemore, where I also assist with coaching juniors at the Cairngorm Biathlon & Nordic Ski Club, of which I am a member. I continue to compete on rollerskis and have an unassailable lead in the Senior standings of the GB Rollerski Series after 7/10 races. I will return to university in Edinburgh in September but continue training alongside my studies in the lead-up to the coming season, at the end of which I also hope to become a BASI-qualified Nordic Ski instructor. Can you now help me to fulfil my proven potential and make a contribution towards the cost of my training and equipment? In return I would be pleased to act as an ambassador for you and recognise your support in the press, broadcast and social media, display your own logo and provide personal or written reports, and photos. I would be delighted to hear from you and to discuss my request further". Contact: Robert Sircus. Address: 14 MacBean Road, Kincraig, Kingussie PH21 1AD. Tel.: +441540651554.

SEA/002 JOE COOMBS - CANOE SLALOM ATHLETE
Joe Coombs is a 21 year old GB Canoe Slalom Athlete and competes in the Men's Kayak discipline. His dream is to go to, and win a medal at, the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. For the past ten years Joe has been on the development pathway aiming for the Rio Olympics. However, this season hasn't gone to plan: due to university exams and injury he hasn't reached his performance potential and has been dropped from UK Sport funding, even though he narrowly missed the senior team by 0.2 of a second. He is training hard and funding himself on limited savings at present. He is a final year Business Management and Marketing student and Nottingham Trent University and knows the potential positives of investing in local talent. He can strengthen your brand and can attend your PR events. He can guide traffic from his website www.joecoombs.co.uk (see link below) to yours and could even take your staff on a canoeing day! Trying to fund his sport is very difficult - each season he buys a boat worth 1,800 and the total training costs he incurs easily exceed 8,000. In return for your sponsorship support, he can help develop your brand and appeal to your customers. He has plenty of space for your logos on the boat, paddles, buoyancy aid and helmet and can feature you on his website and Youtube channel, which has over 36,000 video views. Follow him on Twitter: @Joe_Coombs. Contact: Joe Coombs. Address: 43 Pyatt Street, Nottingham NG2 2LD. Tel.: +44 7934951351. E-mail:

SEA/003 STACEY TADD
Stacey Tadd has just been to the London 2012 Olympics for Swimming and has been to all the major competitions within the last four years. For the past two years she has been awarded UK Sport Lottery funding. However, from the end of October she will no longer receive this as she missed the standard set by them by three places. She is currently number one in Britain and has been crowned British Champion for three years running for her event, the 200m Breastroke, and she also holds the long course English Record. "I feel that I have a bit more to give to my sport and don't really want to hang up my goggles yet, but feel I may have to, as to swim full time without the funds is impossible, as I need to live and pay for things. I was wondering if there is anything I could do for you and your company in order for you to help fund/sponsor me in my swimming career as I am still improving? I would be happy to help advertise your business, such as wear your brand's name on my club kit at competitions. Any interviews I do I will praise and mention you. My full achievements can be found via this link:
http://www.swimming.org/britishswimming/swimming/womens-profiles/stacey-tadd/7255/. Many Thanks for taking the time to read this and I really hope you can help. Stacey Tadd". Contact: Stacey Tadd. Address: 58 Waterford Park, Radstock BA3 3TS. E-mail: littlemissgiggles21_729@hotmail.com.
