Opus Energy’s sponsorship of Dan

Dan was interviewed today about the next 12 months of his sponsorship with Opus Energy. Speaking to the Northamptonshire Telegraph he said:

“It’s vital for an athlete to have sponsorship so that they can fulfil their potential. Opus Energy has supported me since 2009. In that year I was ranked as the 2nd best in the world, and in 2010 I won the European Championships.

"It was a good boost to know that Opus Energy would be supporting me for the next 12 months as I was worried beforehand. Hopefully I can get back to the gym and get more good results.”

Here’s a photograph of Dan with Jon Dunham, Sports Reporter at the Northamptonshire Telegraph (left) and Andy Nash, Operations Director at Opus Energy (right):

Keep an eye on the Northamptonshire Telegraph website to read the interview - we expect it to be published over Christmas!
