Ron Brooks Mansfield Helps Local Swimmer AY-GO for Gold

7th August 2017
News, Mansfield

Record-breaking Junior Swimmer Elliot Clogg from Clipstone, Nottinghamshire, will enjoy a year of sponsored motoring from Ron Brooks Toyota Mansfield. The company have supplied Elliot with free use of a new Toyota AYGO x-press, which will help him make the twice-daily 60-mile round-trip to the National Training Centre in Loughborough as part of an intense training regime.

The demanding training programme involves 4:30am starts Monday-Friday for 48 weeks of the year and Elliot fits all this in around college work & organising meal plans & nutrition.

The AYGO x-press has been liveried up with gold decals, in keeping with the athletics tradition of “going for gold”. The economical 1.0-litre petrol engine averages up to 68.9mpg while the city-car proportions and easy driving style makes the AYGO perfect for young drivers – 17 year old Elliot only passed his driving test in June this year.

Elliot holds the British Junior Records for the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke in a 25 metre pool as well as the English Junior record for the 100m Freestyle. His dream is to swim at international level and is targeting making the national squad for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo – of which Toyota Motor Corporation are a global sponsor. 

Mike Lane, Centre Principal at Ron Brooks Mansfield, said “It is with great delight that we are able to extend this offer of vehicle sponsorship to Elliot.

“Here at Ron brooks we are dedicated to developing new and exceptional talent and we believe that Elliot has what it takes to make a huge impact in his sport”.

Elliot was understandably over the moon, and commented “I can’t express how much it means to be supported in this way. So grateful for what Ron Brooks have done for me. Massive thank you!”

Elliot’s father, Derek, said “We can’t thank Ron Brooks enough really for the tremendous support this offer represents”.

The agreement began in August and runs for an initial 12 months.
