As SportsAid's Patron, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge is helping to shine a light on the achievements and potential of young athletes
throughout the UK - helping to inspire a generation who may one day represent their nation at the Olympic or Paralympic Games.
Welsh Paralympian discus and shot star Aled Sion Davies MBE (pictured below) a Double World Champion and record holder, has met the Duchess of
Cambridge twice - once when she presented him with his Gold Medal at London 2012 and again when he captained the Wales team to their most successful ever Commonwealth Games, in Edinburgh in
Aled says "It's great to have Her Royal Highness as Patron of SportsAid - you can see how much the Duchess loves sport. We have to make sure we keep
bringing the talent through. It all starts at the grass roots. Upcoming athletes are hungry for success and with the right support - anything's possible!"
Her Royal Highness praised SportsAid
for ensuring 'there is a strong pipeline of inspirational heroes' in an address at the charity's 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner. See:
