A BRADFORD woman was "immensely proud' to collect an award on behalf of the specialist sports firm she runs.

In December, Chloe Waddington's Skylab were named Best Sports Technology Firm at the Northern Enterprise Awards.

It placed the organisation amongst some of the very best in both the sports and sports technology sectors across the north’s thriving business landscape.

The accolade, which aims to recognise sports technology firms disrupting the industry, was awarded to Skylab for its work with leading sporting organisations both in the UK and around the world.

Clients include a number of national governing bodies, premier league teams, a Formula 1 outfit and sporting organisations across the UK and around the world.

Head of Business at Manchester-based Skylab, Mrs Waddington, who was born and raised in Bradford, said: "The unique combination of services offered by Skylab and Skylab: Elite Performance Analysis allows us to provide effective, custom-made web-development and sports performance analysis solutions to the Sports Industry.

"We are immensely proud that this potential has been recognised by SME and the Northern Enterprise Awards in our Best Sports Technology Firm award.

"We at Skylab look forward to continuing to bring truly disruptive, bespoke offerings to the sports industry."
