A game-show win is helping Great Britain’s Katie Ingram in her quest for Olympic glory in 2012.

The Loughborough-based triathlete won £42,000 on the show Deal Or No Deal, fronted by Noel Edmonds, and that enabled her to move full-time to the town and join the Tri-Gold scheme which unearths new talent with their sights set on London.

Ingram said: “I actually applied as a bit of a joke and didn’t really expect to get on, but I did and everything fell just right. I filmed the show two months before I had even heard about Tri-Gold.

“It was fate, really, as it helped me get full-time to Loughborough a lot quicker and it has been so beneficial to be surrounded by other elite athletes.”
