Congratulations to Josie Cram who won the Gold Medal at the Duathlon World Championships in Denmark in July 2018. We are pleased to announce we will be continuing our support and sponsorship of Josie and wish her luck at the Europeans in October 2018.
As part of their many efforts to support worthy causes, Dorchester Living chose to sponsor Josie Cram, an up and coming British athlete and daughter to Steve Cram – the former 1500m world record holder. A donation was made to help her with training, equipment and competition costs.
Dorchester Living sponsored Josie Cram at the 2017 Multisport World Championships as she took part in the sprint duathlon. An event which combines a 7.5km run with 20km of cycling. Josie originally found her love for the event as she increased her cycling due to injuries preventing her from running regularly.
The support from Dorchester Living helped to send Josie to her first ever World Championship competition. While she dons the team GB badges, her efforts at the championships are entirely self-funded, making the donation by Dorchester Living an invaluable help.
Josie secured a second-place victory at the event, a silver medal, which hangs next to the bronze she had won at the 2017 European Championships.
Josie commented: “I am hugely grateful for the support from Dorchester Living, it’s extremely humbling to be given such an opportunity and to know that there is belief in my abilities. It is such an amazing feeling to put on the GB kit anywhere in the world, and your support made that possible for me.”
Josie now has her eyes set on the 2018 world championships in Denmark where she hopes to achieve a gold in the sprint duathlon.
Paul Silver, CEO at Dorchester Living comments: “The decision to sponsor Josie on her journey to the world championships was an obvious one, she’s a talented young athlete and with our support she was able to prove herself and win a silver medal at the event. May her successes continue, as she turns her focus to the Denmark World Championships.”
