After being inspired watching the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, I attended a para-fest in December of that year where I was tested by Great Britain Cycling Team coaches.
I want to reach more world level finals in Vert and maybe start to podium. I also want to compete next year at world level in Skate Park and hopefully make it out to Tokyo in this discipline for the UK.
I am optimistic about the rest of the summer however, as I know I am playing well and putting in good, hard work. Hopefully this year I can push on and achieve my goals of winning another futures title and making the final of an ATP challenger event.
GLL support is massive to someone like me who competes in a mulit-discipline sport, and the support from GLL makes a massive difference in helping to alleviate some of the financial burden.
Lutalo has been supported through the GLL Sport Foundation since 2008, when he was a junior fighter looking to mate it on the international circuit. He has continually been supported through out his two Olympic cycles.
GLL is extremely supportive in my journey as an athlete. Being able to access facilities all over London for me is extremely valuable with my hectic schedule and the money has been a great asset towards warm weather training camps.

Marilyn is 5 times 800m National Champion and is the current National Record Holder for 600m and 4x400m. She has made appearances in either the Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Team GB or Team England for 9 consecutive years.
The GLL Sport Foundation has helped me a lot this year, they have given me support for my rocky season. I had to go up to Leeds from Plymouth for recovery and rehab and the GLL has helped fund my time up there along with British Diving.
Aimee Willmott is one of the GLL Sport Foundation Ambassadors who has her sights set on competing at Rio. The London 2012 Olympic legacy has really helped many athletes stay motivated until 2016, and Aimee is no exception.
