Golden girl up for Athlete of the Year
Britain’s most successful winter Olympian of all time, Lizzy Yarnold, has been nominated for Athlete of the Year.
After winning back-to-back golds at the Sochi and PyeongChang Games, the former Maidstone Grammar School for Girls pupil, from West Kingsdown, said she wanted her success to inspire youngsters to exercise more and to promote a healthy body image, for girls especially.
Athlete of the Year is one of the categories up for grabs as part of this year’s National Lottery Awards. The winner will receive £5,000 for a charity of their choice, with voting open until midnight on September 14.
