James Stewart, who competes in the duathlon – a running and cycling event similar to the triathlon – is now being backed by British Ceramic Tile, with the funding enabling him to enter the world championships in Spain later this month, writes Sean Keywood.

James, who has risen up the ranks from being a complete novice in just three years, said: “I competed several weeks ago at the European Championships in Holland, winning a bronze medal.

“The next major championship is the worlds – the race we have all been working towards – and with the sponsorship from British Ceramic Tile I have now booked and paid for my flights, accommodation and race entry.

“I’m thrilled the company has come on board as a sponsor and look forward to building an ongoing relationship with them.”

British Ceramic Tile marketing director Caryn Clarke said: “James has self-funded all of his competitions at quite a cost, but with the help of our support, that of his coach and other key sponsors, he’s now well on the road to success at the championships.

“We’re delighted that we are supporting such an exciting homegrown talent, and will be cheering him on.”
