Todd Bennett TSS Bursary Financial Support Award


Todd Bennet Seoul 1988

Todd Bennett, founding partner of Team Superschools (TSS), visited hundreds of schools up and down the country to promote sport to school children and inspire them to be the best that they can be and enjoy the benefits of sport. Through TSS school visits thousands of pounds has also been raised to fund school sport resources.

Sadly Todd lost his six-month battle with cancer on the 16 July 2013 at the age of 51. Todd was an amazing athlete who dedicated his life to sport and gave up so much time for others. Todd will be greatly missed by his family, friends, schools and the wider athletics world. His legacy will continue to live on through TSS where bursary support awards are available to support the next generation of young people choosing sport to make a difference.

Todd's greatest achievements, on track, was winning silver in the 1984 Olympic Games in the 4x400m relay, two times European 400m Indoor Champion, two times Commonwealth Games Champion 4x400m relay and he was also World Record holder Indoor 400m.

Todd, as an athlete showed true determination and belief and would always give 100%, listening to and inspiring others along the way. He possessed the characteristics of a champion and honourable sportsman which brought admiration from all those that had interacted with him.

As a coach and mentor, if athletes showed commitment and a willingness to learn, he would not turn them away; they did not have to be the best, but he did expect them to try their best. His energy, passion and the time he devoted to helping and inspiring others was remarkable.

Applications for academic year 2018/19 awards must be applied for by a teacher, parent or guardian and provide their relevant contact details to enable Team Superschools to notify if the sports person has been successful or not.
