So far, 2022 has been a marquee year for our Sporting Champions athletes. It’s seen many of them – both from the main scheme and Elite Athletes – taking part in a home Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, with several of them experiencing enormous success!
With that in mind, we’d like to take this opportunity to extend our most heartfelt congratulations to every Sporting Champion who was chosen to compete for their country at the Games. It must have a singular experience and one that we’re sure will long in their memories.
We must also extend special congratulations to all those Sporting Champions and Elite Athletes who managed to achieve a medal at these most special of championships. From all of us here at Everyone Active, well done!
