Hawk Group is delighted to announce a new sponsorship partnership with Ollie Turner, a professional triathlete from Jersey.

Following on from studying Sport Studies at Highlands College, Ollie just graduated with a degree in Sports & Exercise Science at Cardiff Metropolitan University and is now competing professionally as a triathlete.

Ollie currently races International Triathlon at Elite Senior and U23 levels, which has taken him to compete for Great Britain in multiple World and Continental Cups. In addition, he was selected to compete as part of ‘Team Jersey’ at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and more recently the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games where he finished 15th.

Kiri Cavill, Managing Director, Hawk Group, said ‘We are very excited to be adding another sportsperson to our sponsorship roster for 2023, it’s fantastic to be able to branch out and support such varied sporting talents. We continue to support our island's athletes because we know that Jersey is home to excellence in business and sports, and we are proud to play our part in both.’

Ollie Turner, added 'I’m super excited to partner with Hawk Group for 2023. It’s particularly rewarding to work alongside like-minded individuals within a company that holds the same values as myself. I hope to use the support to take the next step forward with my triathlon career, particularly on the world stage.”.

Ollie’s next challenge is an Olympic distance continental cup event in South Africa in March, where he plans to chase more valuable world ranking points.
