Dream It Believe It Achieve It funded UK Deaf Sport to send a team to the Sofia Deaflympics in 2013.
The sports were diverse and included Shooting, Karate, Badminton, Tennis, Cycling, Football and Swimming. Our funding allowed all the athletes and their support people to attend the Deaflympics. We provided kit for the GB team, including the women’s football team, who gained a bronze medal in their competition. Prior to the Deaflympics, Dream It Believe It Achieve It funded training weekends for the deaf athletes, provided sports science to the Women’s Deaf Football Team from December 2012 – which undoubtedly helped them win their medal.
