Medalists celebrations event a great success

This week staff and students celebrated the achievements of our London 2012 medalists at a special event in the Founders Hall.

Seven of our 11 medal-winning athletes were welcomed on stage by Stephen Baddeley, Director of Sport and Professor Bernie Morley, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching) to watch highlights of their achievement and answer a few questions from Student’s Union President, Chris Clements.

Stephen Baddeley was delighted by the success of the day. He said: “It was great to have seven of our medal-winning athletes come along and be seen by hundreds of our staff and students.

“Even after the event had finished, so many people stayed on to get autographs and have their photos taken and it was the intimacy of the occasion that was really powerful.”
