University of Bristol alum Eboni Beckford-Chambers, who was awarded the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship in 2006, has won a Gold Medal at the recent Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia as a member of Team England’s winning Netball team.

As an undergraduate, Eboni received the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship between 2006 and 2009 when she was a Law student at the University and a member of the High Performance Squad.

Eboni joins former Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship recipients Georgie Twigg, who won a gold medal at the Rio Olympics as part of Team GB’s Hockey team, and Tom Mitchell, who won a silver medal at the Rio Olympics as part of Team GB’s Rugby 7s team.
