Going for gold

We couldn't be prouder of the Olympians and Paralympians that make up our student community. The delayed Tokyo 2020 Games featured a number of Bristol graduates, including some from our postgraduate community:

  • Angus Groom, who studied for a master's in Stem Cells and Regeneration, took silver in the Olympic quadruple sculls.
  • Dan Bethell shone bright in Tokyo, becoming the first ever British badminton player to win a Paralympics medal with a silver at this year's games. Dan studied his LLB and LLM at Bristol.
  • Andrew Pozzi, an MSc Management graduate, came seventh in the Olympic 110m hurdles, impressing with his explosive speed.
