The UK’s Future Olympic Hopefuls On Camp With Dame Kelly Holmes

Tuesday 1st–Thursday 10th April 2008: 30 promising young athletes from across the UK have been personally selected by Dame Kelly Holmes to attend an intensive ten-day camp held at Loughborough University this week. The runners will each receive elite training and advice from the double Olympic gold medallist herself, in the hope that they too may go on to become the UK’s future Olympic stars.

‘On Camp with Kelly’ is a mentoring and training scheme, giving middle distance runners the opportunity to learn and benefit from Dame Kelly’s own knowledge and experiences as a world-class athlete. The scheme, which the Olympic champion began in 2004, was originally developed for promising female athletes – but now for the first time has also been expanded to include male athletes as well.
