I am fortunate to receive a modest level of funding from British Swimming and have this year been chosen by Speedo as one of its sponsored athletes. Toyota has also stepped in to support me, and a number of individuals are backing my Olympic journey. I am extremely grateful to all my sponsors as support is critical, without it my choices are simple but stark; sacrifice sporting or academic performance and find paid work.

I use any sponsorship support to help fund competitions, camps, equipment, specialist food and training expenses. In return, I will undertake social media posts, public speaking, swim clinics, marketing support, product placement and brand publicity.

I am looking for supporters who can contribute in some way or other to help me achieve my goal of representing Great Britain at the highest of international levels and hopefully bring back medals to the UK. If you think you would like to be one of my sponsors or supporters, please get in touch via email at teamtomdean@gmail.com.

I will continue to develop my website and social media accounts, so I hope you will check in to keep up with my progress. Providing support to young talent to help them achieve their full potential can be rewarding for both parties.

If, and when, I reach the Olympics you can know you have genuinely helped make that possible. Hopefully, you will be cheering me on having invested in the process that put me there. Help from people like you means the difference between reaching a final or getting on the podium. Swimming is a sport where milliseconds make the difference – your support can give me the milliseconds.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
