Eugene Amo-Dadzie – dubbed The World’s Fastest Accountant expected to shine at the 2024 Paris Olympics, has announced new sponsorship support from TaxScouts.
The fourth fastest Brit of all time with a 100m time of 9.93 seconds is also a full-time senior chartered accountant at construction company, St George PLC.
Having set his sights on Paris 2024 qualification, Eugene is teaming up with tax and accounting platform TaxScouts to help him on his journey.
The financial support provided by TaxScouts will go towards Eugene’s coaching fees, medical fees, training camps, equipment, travel, accommodation, and other day-to-day living expenses as he takes more time away from work to train.
Eugene discovered his talent for running in 2018 after a friend encouraged him to try out sprinting.
After a few short years he announced himself on the global stage, with his 9.93 second run last summer making him the 10th fastest man in European History.
All of this was accomplished whilst Eugene continued his accounting career at St George PLC – something he credits as being integral to his success on the track.
Eugene commented: “I’m delighted to be partnering with TaxScouts, it will also help prove how accountancy doesn’t need to be a rigid industry – and with a flexible approach, achieving your goals both in and out of the office can be possible.”
The partnership was crafted by Gateway Sports & Entertainment, a sports marketing & talent agency.
CEO & founder Deji Akande added: “Eugene is an exceptional guy and a great example of what can be achieved when you believe in your talents and take the courageous step to turn vision into reality.
The union between Eugene and TaxScouts is a perfect match, as they both share a huge passion for taking ownership of your journey and embracing flexibility to help you achieve your goals in the best (and fastest) way possible!”
