John Travers Olympic Hopeful Ireland Sponsorship - Verus Metrology

Sligo medical device companies Verus Metrology, Arrotek Medical and Ward Automation have come together to provide sponsorship for Irish middle-distance runner and Olympic hopeful John Travers. John aims to make it onto the Irish Olympic team to compete in the 5,000 meters long-distance track event in Japan in July/August.

Discussing the importance of the recent sponsorship confirmation, John says:

It is absolutely brilliant getting this support. Up until recently I had been working full-time so it was hard to put my full focus on running. I have now given up work to concentrate on getting to the Olympics and this financial support has completely taken away the stress. I can now get into the qualifying races that I need to. It also helps with the training and nutrition, it’s fantastic.

This is the biggest financial sponsorship I have received as an athlete and it is great that it is coming from three successful Sligo companies.
