A Hampshire athlete scheme has seen its funding doubled thanks to an Olympic Legacy Programme.
Promising sportsmen and women are being invited to apply for the scheme which opens applications from Monday 2nd September.
The programme was launched by Hampshire-based gold medallist cyclist Dani King in July.
Hampshire County Council's Olympic Legacy Programme have given the athlete scheme £92,000 per year for the next three years.
The money will support local athletes with training, sports science and physiotherapy.
Keith Chapman, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Culture and Recreation, said:
“Hampshire has a strong sporting heritage, with many exceptional sportsmen and women living in the county. The Hampshire Talented Athlete Scheme goes some way to providing much needed support to these committed, talented and determined sportsmen and women.”
Hampshire cyclist Dani King has won a gold medal on the opening day of the Track World Cup in Glasgow. Dani came first in the women's team pursuit along with Laura Trott and Elinor Barker. Dani won a gold medal for the team pursuit at London 2012.
Golden moment: Olympic cyclist, Dani King, arrived home in Hamble to a heroes welcome this evening. It was all LIVE on Meridian Tonight as our Olympics reporter, Sally Simmonds, was interviewing Dani's sister at the time. Watch the very special moment again.
