Celebration event for Commonwealth Games student athletes

I was delighted to host a celebratory event to congratulate the eight students who competed at the Commonwealth Games this summer. The students all benefitted from the University’s High Performance Programme (HPP) which supports the sporting and academic careers of talented aspiring athletes while raising the standard of sport at Cardiff University. Five of the eight athletes were able to attend the event which was run in conjunction with the HPP induction event for the 65 students on the programme this year. It was wonderful to be able to congratulate the athletes who did so well at Glasgow and to meet the next generation of talented and aspiring students.
