Arnott is one of six para-athletes named in British Athletics’ squad of 32 selected for the 2016/17 programme.
Last year, he was joined on the scheme by fellow City of Plymouth AC athlete David King. However, King is one of three athletes to graduate on to the World Class Performance Programme for 2016-17.
The Futures Programme, supported by Nike, assists emerging athletes and their coaches and underpins the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP).
The 2016-17 programme runs from December 1, 2016 to November 30, 2017 and will continue British Athletics’ drive towards supporting the next generation of talent with more targeted support for athletes and their coaches.
