Healthspan Partnership: British Athletics
Healthspan has been providing British Athletics with high-quality supplements from Healthspan Elite, its sports nutrition brand, for five years.
Healthspan works closely with a number of British Athletics members, including nutritionist Nigel Mitchell, who is one of our Sports Experts, as well as triple jumper Nathan Douglas and retired sprinter Iwan Thomas, who are both official Healthspan ambassadors.
In February 2021, Healthspan became British Athletics' Official Sports Nutrition Supplier. Through the partnership, high-performance athletes on the Olympic and Paralympic World Class Programme (WCP) will be able to access high-quality, batch-tested and Informed Sport-accredited vitamins and supplements to support their nutrition needs.
The 2018 IAAF World Indoor Championships, Birmingham: Team GB came away with two gold medals, one silver and four bronze, to finish fourth in the medals table.
What is British Athletics?

British Athletics also plays an important role in creating mass appeal for athletics through televised events and encouraging participation, regardless of age, ability or background.
At the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Team GB came away with two gold medals and three silvers, to finish sixth in the table.
