Official Sponsor of World-Class Triathlete Grant Sheldon

As part of our extensive sponsorship programme 'from grass roots to gold medals', we are proud to announce that VELOCHAMPION will be sponsoring world class triathlon champion, Grant Sheldon.

At the young age of 22 the former swimmer, Grant decided to try a triathlon. In 2011, his first year competing as a junior, Grant's performances in the GE Strathclyde Park Triathlon, and the Blenheim Triathlon gained him selection for the GB squad. Grant won a bronze medal at the ITU world junior championships in Hyde Park in 2013. In 2014 Grant represented Scotland at The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and only last year he was crowned World University Triathlon Champion and finished 4th at the ITU World Series Triathlon in Edmonton.

He is now an athlete focusing on the world of ITU Triathlon, Grant Sheldon commented; "Happy to join with VELOCHAMPION for this season. Been riding the Shark Aero Pro for a couple of weeks now and it's a fast bike! At the top level of sport, you need the best equipment and this will allow me to compete with the best in the world!"

Wayne Greenhalgh, Director of VELOCHAMPION followed with; "We are proud to help young athletes achieve their dreams in cycling and triathlon. Grant has already had some great results, we are sure he will continue his path to the top of the Triathlon ladder, and hopefully our VELOCHAMPION and Shark Composite products will help him get there. We also secured him sponsorship from Pro-Lite wheels, which combined with the Shark Aero frameset will surely give him an advantage over his competitors".
