June was a great month of sport with many athletes being selected to head out to the Rio Olympics and Paralympics. It was a difficult choice as so many of our athletes had outstanding performances, but the GLL Sport Foundation are proud to announce that Daryll Neita is our June Athlete of the Month.
Daryll is supported by Greenwich Starting Blocks in partnership with the GLL Sport Foundation and is being supported this year at an ambassador level. Daryll has been on the scheme since 2012, but has proven why she is now an ambassador of programme.
In Daryll’s application she stated, “I aspire to be part of Rio 2016 ideally for the individual event, and also the 4x100m relay. The award will provide lots of support to me in many ways, such as help to contribute to coaching fees, warm weather training camp fees, supplements and equipment which I will need on my journey to Rio.”
“Just want to say a massive thank you for the award, I really do appreciate all the support I get from GLL. Looking forward to 2016 season and playing a part in the GLL Sport Foundation as an ambassador.”
Daryll has achieved her aim of making the Olympics and we look forward to seeing how she performs out in Rio. Congratulations and good luck!
