A 17-year-old girl from St Albans has been selected as one of eight winners of Young Sportsperson of the Year.
Judo champion Amy Platten was chosen by OCS UK for a mentoring and bursary programme, which will help her family support her through her training, travelling and competing.
Along with the other seven winners from around the UK, Amy has been invited to an event at The Oval this month where one of them will be crowned overall Young Sportsperson of the Year.
She has also been allocated an OCS mentor to provide ongoing support, and to take stories of her achievements back to the business.
Bob Taylor, OCS CEO for UK, Ireland and Middle East, said: “OCS is a family owned business and we are passionate about nurturing talent.
