Who has Talent Cymru supported?

Talent Cymru was launched in 2007 and since then it has supported scores of talented sportspeople such as Commonwealth Games gold medallist Georgia Davies, European boxing champion Lauren Price, Paralympic javelin champion Hollie Arnold and UCI WorldTeam Team Ineos rider Luke Rowe. And the list goes on…

It supports future talent and acts as a stepping stone between SportsAid Cymru and then either UK Pathway funding or Elite Cymru.

How to apply 

To apply for a Talent Cymru grant, please get in touch with your governing body.
