We have finally selected our ambassadors for 2023-24!
Our team aim at Neuff is to support athletes to be where they want to be in their journey, no matter how experienced or inexperienced they may be.
Predominantly a discus thrower, Brydon also takes part in the shot put and other throws events, and his commitment to his throwing is simply extraordinary!
Representing GB at the U20 European Club Championships in Rome earlier this year was an impressive feat in itself, but Brydon has also claimed a realm of medals at other events, including gold at the 2021 U17 England Championships.
A member of Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC, Brydon aims to reach the 2025 U23 Europeans in Norway, as well as reaching 52m+ in the discus throw and 15m+ in the shot put!

Tabs Ford is covering the distance and cross country events this year as a Neuff Ambassador!
You wouldn't think it, but Tabs only started regularly racing as an athlete in 2021. However, she has quickly proved to be a popular figure in the running community through the regular vlogs and videos she posts on her social media channels!
She's progressing at a rapid pace, so it will be worth watching Tabs' journey with us as time goes on!

We're bringing something new to our ambassador team this year by adding Alex Giles to the mix!
Serving as the head throws coach at Gateshead Harriers, Alex is incredibly devoted to coaching numerous up-and-coming athletes across all throws events, all of whom he's currently guiding towards national or regional titles!
Alex also has an extensive knowledge of our services, having ordered from Neuff for a number of years. With this in mind, we're looking forward to working with him on a mixture of digital content for the whole track and field community!
Our 2023 hammer throw ambassador for is Jessica Higgins!
Competitive, determined and never one to give up, Jess has already accomplished a lot at such a young age, including a number of Greater Manchester Schools & County titles!
Hoping to get back to English Schools next season and to meet new athletes who share a similar passion for throwing, 2024 is already showing a lot of promise for Jess, and the whole team at Neuff is proud to have her on board!
Meet Owen Boon, the youngest athlete who has joined our ambassador team this year! 🙌
He may only be 14, but age has certainly not been a barrier to all of Owen's current achievements, including five league and championship records and the coveted title of U15 National Champion for 2023!
Owen's confidence for such a young athlete is astounding, so much so that he's given us a great deal of confidence that big things are on the horizon for his journey as a rising throws star!
Representing the pole vault community as part of our newest ambassador team is Harry Casey!
A creative athlete who is always ready to learn new skills for his vaulting performance, Harry is fully dedicated to his craft and he's consistently ranked within the top 5 in the UK since he started vaulting!
Our team are proud to support Harry as a new ambassador, and he will undoubtedly be a role model for many other vaulters out there as we head into the 2024 season!

Zara Obamakinwa is the next addition to our ambassador team!
Currently ranking 1st in the U20 discus throw and 3rd across all age groups, Zara knows no bounds when it comes to throwing far and she was recently selected for the latest British Athletics Olympic Futures Programme!
Zara is going from strength to strength, and we can't wait to see how she progresses throughout the next throws season as a Neuff ambassador!
Next in line to join the Neuff ambassador team is Joseph Grange, who ticks many boxes as an athlete and podcast host!
Joe takes part in various long-distance events, as well as cross country. However, he also occasionally competes in steeplechase events, making him the team's first-ever representative for the sport!
Another interesting fact about Joseph is that he co-hosts the Taking The Tape Podcast, where he showcases a range of incredible and inspiring distance runners!

We have a Commonwealth Youth medallist in the midst, and it's Oliver Parker!
While he will serve as the team's representative for hurdles this year, Ollie is also known as a sprinter in the wider community, meaning he's no one-trick pony!
Claiming bronze in the Trinbago 2023 games as a member of Team England was certainly a highlight for Ollie this year, and he is also currently ranked 4th in the U20 400m hurdles!

The latest Neuff para-athlete ambassador is Bebe Jackson!
Competing and training with Harlow AC, Bebe is a true inspiration for all para-athletes, as she often gives it her all in sprints, throws and long jump events!
Much like fellow ambassador Oliver Parker, Bebe was also present at the Trinbago 2023 games, where she bagged a silver medal in discus throw as a Team England representative!

Here to cover combined events for the Neuff ambassador team this year is Reef Page!
Currently a member of Tonbridge AC, Reef frequently trains alongside Neuff blogger Harry Kendall and he's ready to make rapid progress in all areas of his athletics!
Winning the Indoor U20 Combined Events Championship is one of Reef's biggest goals for 2024, although he is also keen to beat his PBs in the 100m and 400m and to reach the 4m mark in pole vault!
Representing Scotland in Neuff's 2024 ambassador team is Stacey Downie!
The 15x international representative for Scotland ultimately has her sights on retaining her World Masters titles, competing at her first European Indoor Masters Championships and medaling at the Scottish Senior Championships!
Considering she is also a PE specialist outside of her sprinting, Stacey is very knowledgeable in many areas of athletics, and we're sure she will be a valuable asset to the Neuff team moving forward!

Get ready to welcome Jack Holmes to Neuff's ambassador team!
To say that Jack is passionate about all things high jump would be the understatement of the year, as he trains non-stop for his competitions and always has a spring in his step wherever he goes!
As a result of Jack's hard work, he's achieved podium placements across many competitions! His 2023 achievements include winning gold at the English Schools Championships and silver at the England Athletics National Championships!

Expressing enthusiasm, creativity and confidence is Jason Kalala, who is the latest sprint athlete to join the Neuff ambassador family!
A member of Newham & Essex Beagles AC, Jason has a few impressive accolades to his name, including representing British Athletics at last year's Mannheim International!
Determined to make an almighty comeback for 2024, Jason has his eyes set on the European Senior championships, especially where the 200m and 4x100m relay events are concerned!
