JEAN PICKERING OLYMPIC SCHOLARSHIPS - Jean Pickering was often called the Fairy Godmother of British athletics and served the sport in so many ways over her lifetime, particularly through her work for the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund. Jean sadly passed away one year ago today and it is with pride that the fund announces the creation of the Jean Pickering Olympic Scholarships.
This scholarship builds on the success of the Great 12 Olympic Fund, where 21 athletes were selected for support three years ahead of London 2012. An extraordinary total of nine of the 16 age eligible athletes were chosen for the 2012 British Olympic team, with five of these making their event final and one, high jumper Robbie Grabarz, winning a bronze medal.
The Jean Pickering Olympic Scholarships have been established to support athletes in their progress to Rio 2016. The £62,500 fund will be distributed to the five selected athletes over the period to Rio 2016.
We are happy to announce that ZANE DUQUEMIN was one of the five athletes to receive a scholarship, which will no doubt help him get to the next level.
