Applications are now open for Team GB’s Ambition Programme, which aims to give experience to young athletes who are potential Olympians of the future.

The Ambition Programme, first created before the London Olympics, is one of the British Olympic Association’s approaches to achieving performance gains and enhancing British medal success by providing aspiring Olympians and their coaches or other performance staff with an opportunity to experience an Olympic Games prior to competing in one.

The programme aims to inspire young athletes and to better inform their preparations for the following Olympic Games. The BOA plans to offer around 100 places over five waves of a maximum of 20 people per wave to travel to Tokyo to experience the 2020 Olympics.

Previous members of the programme who have gone on to win Olympic medals include triathlete Jonathan Brownless, badminton player Marcus Ellis, rower George Nash, gymnast Daniel Purvis and Bianca Walkden from taekwondo.

Table tennis athletes with the potential to compete at the Paris 2024 Olympics, or coaches or other staff who will support athletes in their preparations and performances, are invited to apply via the British Table Tennis Federation.
