More than 200 student-athletes – and several Olympians – will represent the University of Bath across eight different sports when the BUCS Nationals take place in Sheffield this weekend.
Rio 2016 swimming medallists Jazz Carlin, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and James Guy, who all train at the University with the British Swimming National Centre Bath, are among those taking part in the major three-day competition.
Among the University students taking part in the swimming meet are MJ Church sporting ambassador Jay Lelliott and fellow sporting scholars Tom Derbyshire, Tom Sinclair, Shauntelle Austin, Thomas Tsiopanis and Emily Siebrecht.
Fresh from their top-three finishes at the British Indoor Team Trials, Cameron Chalmers and Pippa Rogan are among a strong University of Bath competing in the athletics.
The BUCS Nationals are run by British Universities & Colleges Sport. The student sporting season will conclude with BUCS Big Wednesday, this year taking place at the University of Bath Sports Training Village on Wednesday, March 22.
