Malcolm Arnold OBE, one of Britain’s most successful and respected athletics coaches, is to receive an honorary degree.
Arnold will receive an honorary Doctor of Education from the University, where he has worked as a British Athletics coach for the last 15 years.
During that time athletes coached by Arnold have won 40 medals at Olympic Games, World Championships, Commonwealth Games and European Championships.
They include names that read like a ‘Who’s Who’ of some of the nation’s greatest athletes, including Colin Jackson, Jason Gardener and Dai Greene.
Arnold, who is currently Head Coach for the British Athletics Regional Performance Centre, will receive the honorary degree at Bath Abbey on Wednesday 3 July at 12.30pm as part of the summer degree graduation ceremonies.
