TATA KIDS OF STEEL – THE FUTURE
As the Government wrangles over the thousands of jobs, what will become of the company’s youth triathlon series?
A QUESTION MARK continues to hang over the future of Tata Steel, the company behind the Tata – Kids of Steel Triathlon Series, one of the biggest and longest running children’s triathlon series in the world.
Jack Buckner, CEO of British Triathlon assures us that: “Tata Steel continues to support the Tata – Kids of Steel Triathlon series. This year marks the 10th year of the series. During that time, more than 75,000 children aged 8-13 have experienced their first triathlon as part of what is believed to be the world’s largest and longestrunning children’s triathlon series. Some of those have gone on to participate and excel in the sport.
He adds: “Our current sponsor agreement with Tata Steel will expire following the 2016 series of events. As always, we will be working with Tata Steel to evaluate the current relationship and to make a mutual decision on the future.” Were you one of the 75,000 Kids of Steel who have experienced the series?
