At GoSports Foundation, we work towards providing every athlete that has talent and potential, with the required backing to succeed, and it was great for us to finally see 4 of our athletes at the Olympics and 11 at the Paralympics; 3 of the latter brought back medals. That's not all. There was more cause for celebration with a number of our athletes making their presence felt on the international scene.
Before we look ahead and dive into the next Olympic cycle, we wanted to cast a quick look back at the year that was; the year that brought it all together for us at GoSports Foundation!
