Privileged, Proud and Inspired
Robert Welch look back on the great success of Rio 2016.
We have been privileged to sponsor Olympic gold medallist Matt Gotrel of the winning men’s 8 rowing team this year and to gain an insight behind the scenes into Matt’s journey to Rio.
We were proud to be approached by the organisers of British House, Rio 2016: the official home of all things British at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. British House celebrated the sporting achievements of Team GB along with the expertise, creativity and dynamism of the UK and its capital, London. A container of our designs were shipped to Rio in the summer where our cutlery and candleholders have been enjoyed by Team GB, their families and friends and a host of visiting dignitaries. If they could speak, these designs would have some amazing stories to tell!
Most of all we have been inspired by the preparation and performance of our Team GB athletes, our Great Britain Paralympians and their coaching teams – their commitment, perseverance and successes epitomise what puts the “Great” into Britain.
We've collated a few images from inside British House for you to enjoy.
