Cambridgeshire, UK, Friday 15th June 2012: Paralympic swimmer and One Performance Outcome brand ambassador - Lauren Steadman, has a busy schedule ahead of her for the next 12 months. Having qualified for the 2012 Paralympics in April, she has a gruelling training regime in the run-up to the Games. After representing Great Britain, Lauren will be representing One Performance Outcome. She will be attending a number of events, demonstrating the similarities between sports performance and high performance in the work place. All this, on top of studying for a Psychology Degree at Portsmouth University.
Nineteen year old Lauren was born without her right hand and arm below the elbow joint and had a passion for swimming from a very early age. She started swimming before she was even a year old. At the age of four, she was inspired by a meeting with Olympic swimmer Mark Foster and set herself the goal of competing in the Paralympics. She has packed a huge amount of achievements into her young years, not only in her sport but educationally and personally. Her sheer grit and determination has never let her disability stand in the way of achieving her goals.
One Performance Outcome have agreed a generous sponsorship package for the young hopeful, and have donated the brand-new car so that she can travel easily during her gruelling training and racing regime. http://www.oneperformance.co.uk/news-details.aspx?nws_Id=57
Richard Leech, Managing Partner of sponsors One Performance Outcome, said: "We're absolutely delighted to have Lauren as one of our 2012 Performers. The similarities between sports performance and performance at work are clear - goal focus, team working and leadership to name just three. Lauren is a fantastic example of how you can overcome challenges to achieve what you want. Our first hope is that she wins the Gold Medal, and we'll be eagerly cheering her on. We're confident, though, that in any event she will come back from the Games with a unique insight into inspiring performance."
