We were delighted when Amelia got in touch with us recently to share her story with us. Amelia told us: “My name is Amelia Coltman. I am 24 years old and a Great Britain Skeleton Athlete. I got into Skeleton through a talent transfer campaign where I switched from tennis in 2017.
In my first season of International competition in 2019/2020 season, I exceeded my expectations to be crowned the Overall Europa Cup Champion and created history by becoming the first Brit to win this title in their first season of competition. My success was rewarded with a spot on the World Cup team and the athlete longlist to be considered for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. However, in order to compete with the best Skeleton athletes in the World, I needed to buy the best equipment available.
The generous help from the Rob George Foundation has enabled me to purchase this equipment, and I now have the best possible chance of being selected to represent Great Britain at the Winter Olympics and achieve my dreams. I feel so fortunate to be a successful applicant and would like to thank RGF for enabling this amazing opportunity.
The work of the RGF is so inspiring and I hope to stay in touch with the charity and support their work in years to come.”
