Joe Coombs

Joe is from Alderbury near Salisbury, but now lives and trains at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.  He is ranked 13th in the UK Senior Men and 199th in the World.

In 2009, Joe made the GB Junior Team and won a Silver Medal at the Junior European Championships in Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia.  In May 2011 Joe was selected for the GB Under 23 squad.

His short term aim is to become Olympic champion.

We have been delighted to support Joe for the past 6 years, in which time we have seen him compete at numerous events and represent the GB Junior Team. 

In addition to providing Joe with some financial assistance over the last 6 years to help him with his training, equipment and travel costs, Joe has also undertaken some work experience with Trethowans. 

Sadly for Joe he has narrowly missed out on selection for the 2012 Olympic GB team, missing out by just one place at the trials in April 2012, however he remains determined to follow his dream and Rio de Janeiro in 2016 is a firm focus.
