Magicshine UK share success at Rio 2016 

 

Back on the 4th January 2011 we received an email from a young man called Callum Skinner, he was 18 years old and had just been accepted onto the British Cycling Academy Track Sprint Residential Programme.  Callum was looking for sponsorship and we were impressed with his attitude

 

'I believe that I have great potential to compete and win at future Olympic and Commonwealth Games' 

 

Magicshine UK agreed to the sponsorship request, we didn't have funding but we sent him a set of Magicshine MJ-816E front lights, an MJ-818 rear light and one of our stridelight running jackets to keep him safe on his journey to and from the Velodrome in Manchester at night.

 

So imagine our delight when last night Callum quite literally stepped into the shoes of the legendary Chris Hoy and bought home the Gold in the team sprint at Rio.

  

We couldn't be more thrilled for him, it just shows that if you believe in yourself you can achieve great things!
