The UK’s leading bed and mattress store, Dreams has partnered with ParalympicsGB in the build-up to the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics, now set to take place in 2021.
ParalympicsGB are expecting a team of 240 athletes to compete at the Tokyo games, across 537 different events in 22 sports. The Paralympic games are set to take place between the August 24 and September 5.
CEO of ParalympicsGB, Mike Sharrock, said: “Quality sleep, rest and recuperation is fundamental to athletes’ preparation and overall well-being. Through this partnership Dreams are demonstrating a genuine commitment to inclusion and we are really looking forward to working with them.
“This is fantastic news as the unprecedented postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games due to the Covid-19 pandemic has presented us with many challenges so welcoming a new partner will give us a real boost in these final critical months of preparation.
“We are increasingly confident Tokyo 2020 will be a wonderful celebration of all that humanity can achieve after such a tumultuous year and with the support of the British public our talented ParalympicsGB athletes can inspire and unite the nation once again.”
The Great British Paralympic team enjoyed a hugely successful event at the previous Olympic Games held in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. A team of 265 athletes competed across 19 different sports and picked up 147 medals in total.
