We are incredibly proud to send Nick Matveev, Courtney Stott, and Andrea Nelson off to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. It has been an extraordinarily challenging year but we have seen these three athletes keep their goals and olympic dreams front of mind.
We weren't able to host a send off event before the team left for Tokyo this year. Instead, we all came together to wish Nick, Courtney, and Andrea the best of luck at the games in this video. May you have an experience of a lifetime and bring home lots of stories to share with our next generation of athletes. You are history in the making and we can't wait to see you on our screens at home and your names painted on the BBC mural on the boardwalk!
