Ascot Group beneficiary qualifies for 2024 Paris Olympics

We’re beyond proud to announce that Lele Nairne will be representing Team GB at this summer’s Olympics in Paris!

Born and raised in Weston, Lele is an incredible athlete who has dedicated almost half of her life to pursue her dream of becoming an Olympic medalist. Through 18 years of total commitment, sacrifice and relentless training, Lele is one step closer to achieving her goal and will be competing in Paris on Monday 29 July within the 57kg weight category.

As an independent athlete, Lele was actively looking for sponsorship opportunities from businesses located within North Somerset.

At the Ascot Group, we are driven to be a force for good and always prioritise giving back to the local community. It was a no brainer for us to wholeheartedly support this incredible athlete to achieve her aspiration of becoming an Olympic medalist. It’s been two years since we first started sponsoring Lele and we continue to be impressed by her commitment to succeed.

Andrew Scott, CEO and founder of the Ascot Group, said: “Lele’s drive and passion for Judo is truly inspirational. She lives and breathes everything associated with the sport and qualifying for the Paris Olympic Games is testament to this.

“As a business, we’re passionate to support inspirational local causes, charities and individuals wanting to make a big difference and Lele is the perfect example of someone with an unwavering determination to succeed, no matter what obstacles she faces.

“It’s been incredible to sponsor and support Lele over the last few years and we can’t wait to cheer her on as she takes on this next challenge. We’re so proud of everything she’s achieved, and we have every confidence she’ll do a fantastic job.”

This summer’s Olympic judo competition is set to take place between Saturday 27 July and Saturday 3 August at the Arena Champ-de-Mars.
