Sports Performance student Bradley Sutton, supported by a Santander Sporting Scholarship, was runner-up to Sport & Exercise Science graduate Tom Toolis in the men’s competition, with his eight BUCS points ensuring Bath topped the overall rankings. Jamie Harper narrowly missed out on an individual medal as he finished fourth.

The University of Bath Sports Training Village has been home to Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre for the past two decades, with many elite athletes taking the opportunity to combine study and sport.
