Aquatics stars benefit from Podium bursaries

Share this page

Sixteen talented aquatics performers have been awarded a bursary from Podium, Derbyshire Sport’s talented athlete fund.


The bursaries are awarded to performers who are competing for England or Great Britain or are part of a recognised national development squad or development squad aligned to a professional sports club, and are designed to help towards the cost of training and competing in sport. 
The aim is to help emerging sports stars who, while perhaps receiving support from club or governing body structures, are currently receiving limited support from partners within Derbyshire. The 2012 cash pot has been made available thanks to contributions from a number of public and private sector partners who are all members of sport and business initiative ICON, which is aiming to create a lasting legacy from the London 2012 Games in Derbyshire.
The performers are following in the footsteps of Olympic swimmer Ross Davenport, who benefitted from the fund himself before moving away from the County to train at Loughborough University. 
The aquatics performers who have received Podium bursaries for 2012 are: 

Molly Renshaw
