Bath, UK, 3rd February 2016 – Leading Business Cloud Telephony provider Gradwell Communications are delighted to announce the sponsorship of World No 1, GB Wheelchair Fencer, Piers Gilliver. This sponsorship marks the first time the Telecommunications Company has sponsored an elite athlete.
Gradwell’s sponsorship of Piers will help on the road to Rio, where he will bid to win gold at the Paralympics. In a packed pre Paralympics schedule, Gilliver will compete in two further World Cups (Canada & Poland) and the European Championships in Italy. Qualification for the Games will be confirmed later in the summer, based on World Cup results, with the winner of the European Championships in Italy gaining automatic qualification.
“To be successful, teamwork is key” said Julien St John-Dennis, CMO, Gradwell Communications. “We are delighted to be part of Pier’s quest for gold!”
Gilliver only joined The British Disabled Fencing Association in December 2010 and was selected for his first international event to represent GBR at the IWASF World Cup in Warsaw, Poland in July 2012 – finishing 11th in the senior Men’s Epee. In November 2015, Piers was ranked both World No 1 and currently leads the world rankings points qualifying for the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
“It is difficult to express in words how grateful I am to my new sponsors, Gradwell Communications and BMT, for their support at this crucial time. I am really excited to have them on board and joining me on my “Road-to-Rio” journey” said Gilliver. “This financial support has enabled me to fund additional coaching in the lead-up to The Games, purchase new equipment and even organise an additional training camp – all of which make a significant difference and, importantly, help me to keep the Paralympic Gold Medal in my sights!”
