The Army Sport Scholarship Scheme which represents Tier 3 of the Army Elite Athlete Programme selection board which sat on Wednesday 10th July 2019 has released the list of 50 future athletes to join 2019/2020 Army Elite Sport Programme.
The scholarship application for UK- based Malawian Taekwondo athlete, Yamikani Guba and 49 others were amongst the lucky ones out of 67 the Board had received from 20 sports Associations and Unions.
Yamikani received the news with great joy.
“I am happy to be selected again on this Scholarship for two consecutive years (2018/2019 and 2019/2020 season.)This means more time to spend on training and sponsorships on Taekwondo by the big companies”, he said.
The Army Sport Scholarship Scheme includes British Aerospace Electronics (BAE) Scholars and Army Sports Control Board (ASCB) Sport Scholars, which enable Defense Accounts Sports Control Board (DASCB) to fund brightest and best young sportsmen and women from all disciplines who aspire to join the Army Elite Sport Programme at the whole British Army.
