Meet our athlete ambassadors

We’re proud to sponsor four of Team GB’s brightest stars – triathlete Vicky Holland, swimmer Adam Peaty, long jumper Jazmin Sawyers and gymnast Max Whitlock. It’s easy to describe these extraordinary people. Humble, hardworking and totally dedicated to their craft.

Adam
Peaty

The greatest British swimmer of all time? We like to think so. Adam is the reigning Olympic Champion for the 100-metre breaststroke, an eight-time World Champion, a twelve-time European Champion and a three-time Commonwealth Champion. He has broken multiple world records and is the first man to swim under 26 seconds for the 50-metre breaststroke. In short, he’s a pretty good swimmer.

Take a Seat with Adam

We talk tattoos, burgers and gold medals with everyone’s favourite swimmer.

At home with Adam

We got the chance to help makeover Adam’s living room as he prepares for the Games. Creating a comfortable place where his family could relax and spend time together was key for Adam – we think we nailed it.

Jazmin
Sawyers

There’s not much Jazmin can’t turn her hand to. Having competed in heptathlon and the bobsled, she’s now one of Britain’s top long jumpers winning silver at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the European Championships in 2016. Oh and Jazmin has a law degree and also appeared on The Voice UK. Some people have too much talent!

Take a seat with Jazmin

We chat microphones, medals and alternative career paths with the super talented Jazmin Sawyer.

At home with Jazmin

Jazmin is a bit of a homebird who loves nothing more than hanging out with her family. Check out our living room makeover as Jazmin relaxes at her family home with her Mum and real star of the show Chester the dog.

Max
Whitlock

Next up on the pommel horse sofa…Max Whitlock! Max is the most successful British gymnast in history with twelve medals and five titles in Olympic Games and World Championships. He became Britain’s first ever gold medallist in artistic gymnastics when he won both the men’s floor and pommel horse exercises at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Take a Seat with Max

We get into it with the ever-flexible Max Whitlock exploring dodgy haircuts, Olympic success and family life.

At home with Max

Watch our living room makeover with Max as he turns his attention to scoring a perfect 10 for relaxing at home with his wife Leah and daughter Willow.

Vicky
Holland

Swimming, biking and running her way to Tokyo, Vicky is one of Britain’s best triathletes, becoming the first British woman to ever win an Olympic triathlon medal with bronze at Rio 2016. She also claimed the ITU World Champion title in 2018, has won two Mixed Relay World Championship titles and a Commonwealth Mixed Relay gold as well as an individual bronze.

Take a Seat with Vicky

From baking exploits to Vicky’s insane ability to name every single US state, we discover the real Vicky Holland.
