RGF supports Olympic Swimming hopeful, Amber

Amber has been in touch with us recently and told us: “I am so grateful to The Rob George Foundation for funding me. The support means that I can afford to travel to the British Swimming Glasgow Meet, our final Olympic qualification event! This racing opportunity will also be a massive help as race practice in preparation for trying to qualify for the Commonwealth Games next year. The small gains really do help, and the RGF funding also means that I will be able to attend sports psychology sessions and buy a new racing suit, which otherwise I could not have afforded this year!The Rob George Foundation is an amazing charity I am incredible grateful for their support, and incredibly inspired by the stories of the other individuals they support!

Amber shared some photos with us, the first proudly wearing her RGF running vest, plus competing at the AK Winter Nationals (courtesy of DE Photos) and finally, representing Munich at Bundesliga 2020.

Keep up the great work Amber!
