28 May 2014

Judo player Andrew Burns is the latest University of Bath graduate selected to compete at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Burns is a member of the 14-strong Scottish judo squad announced by Commonwealth Games Scotland today (Wednesday).

Burns graduated from the University of Bath with a degree in Coach Education and Sports Development in 2009 and trained with Team Bath before making the move north of the border last year ahead of Glasgow 2014. He was born in Glasgow and now lives in Edinburgh.

Currently ranking fourth in the British judo rankings at under-90kg, he could come up against current Team Bath judo player Gary Hall in Glasgow. Hall has already been selected to represent England at the Games.

Burns becomes the 30th athlete and eighth judo player with University of Bath links to be selected to compete at the Glasgow 2014 Games. He is also the third member of the Scotland team, joining Eilidh Child (athletics) and Michael Jamieson (swimming), who currently train at the University.

The 30 athletes with University of Bath links selected to compete at Glasgow 2014 will represent seven countries in six sports at Glasgow 2014.
They will compete for England, Ghana, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Scotland and Wales, in athletics, badminton, hockey, judo, shooting and swimming.
