Caesars Entertainment EMEA Head Office is proud to be supporting SportsAid athlete…
Being picked to represent England and Great Britain is a great motivator for getting up at 4.15am to train, says Harry Constantine, 18, who is now aiming for selection to the 2020 Olympic squad.
If dedication is anything to go by, he must be in with a good chance. As well as those early morning pool work-outs several days a week, Harry trains for another two hours six evenings a week, and puts in a couple of hours’ strength and conditioning work each day on top of that.
The boy who hated swimming lessons but always loved the water, quickly outgrew his local club at Dunstable and has been with Hatfield Swimming Club since he was 14. Now a member of the GB World Class Talent Podium Programme, he says his SportsAid award from Caesars will help fund GB camps and travel to important competitions.
“Swimming has given me real purpose and self-confidence,” says Harry, who also enjoys playing tennis. “All children should get the opportunity to do sport. It can turn a miserable child with low self-esteem into a thriving confident person.
“My sporting hero is Usain Bolt because, like me, he is very tall (I am 6ft 8) and he achieved against the odds. I hope to do the same.”
