The UK's winner of the windsurfing bronze medal at the Athens Olympics, Nick Dempsey, is sponsored by financial technology marketing consultancy and Finextra sister company 660°.
The improbable meeting of the Olympics and the financial technology industry follows a chance meeting between Dempsey and Alastair Tweedie, the windsurfing-obsessed founder of 660°.
"Running an Olympic windsurfing campaign is expensive, in terms of training, travel and equipment. 660° was able to help Nick with some of his costs, allowing him to focus 100% on his training," says Tweedie.
To celebrate this successful Olympic campaign, 660° is inviting 10 people to join Dempsey for a day's windsurfing on the UK's south coast - visit www.660degrees.com
