Whilst Panathlon’s main ethos is about providing sporting opportunities for all and achieving through teamwork, we also like to recognise the outstanding achievements of some of our individual competitors.
In 2009 we created our Outstanding Achievement Award in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation, who provide grants to projects that benefit young people aged 11 to 25 and have been a supporter of Panathlon for over a decade, investing over half a million pounds in that time.
Each year after a nomination and a short-listing process, the final nominees are invited to John Lewis Stratford City in the Olympic Gallery Suite, for our high profile awards ceremony.
In November 2017 we awarded not only the Outstanding Achievement Awards as per list below, but also awards to the Outstanding Leader of the Year Award to Lora Umelue and a special award for Excellence in Sport and Leadership to Sean Nealon-Lino
Further information on our awards ceremony is available via our the links in each year below.
Jack Petchey Outstanding Achievement Awards – Roll of Honour
Such is the success of these Outstanding Achievement Awards in London and Essex, we extended them further and other awardees have been recognised around the country, including Billie Lambert, Finn Knaggs and Shahayna Begum at the Yorkshire Children of Courage awards. In Yorkshire we also recognised Thomas Ringrose and Thomas Green.
