OXYGEN Freejumping has created the first junior ambassador programme within Obstacle Course Racing by joining forces with The OCR Girls.
The OCR Girls are a junior female team made up of three athletes already making their mark in the senior OCR ranks: Amelia Cocksedge, 16; Jess Cope, 14; and Evie Waring, 13.
The support from Oxygen will help the team continue their rise in the world of OCR, with a contribution towards the cost of travel, kit, race entry and access to training.
CEO of Oxygen Freejumping David Stalker said: “We are delighted to be supporting the girls to achieve their goals on the OCR circuit, whilst also promoting physical activity, particularly among kids.
“Amelia, Jess and Evie, are already competing and beating the best adult athletes, and we are sure they will inspire lots of other young boys and girls.
“At a time where obesity is at an all-time high, and there is a substantial drop o? in physical activity levels among young people, these girls are getting involved in a sport which means you get muddy, your hair is wet and messy and are proving that they can still look strong, athletic and pretty cool with it.”
