"It was an overwhelming surprise to have received the High Performance Sports Scholarship to help support me with my goals of achieving and maintaining international standard of performance in track and field. Funding is always an issue when it comes to sport, as it helps to provide for facilities, therapy and equipment, which is all essential in aiding the prowess of my sport. Without the scholarship, it would have proven difficult to have done these things.

I have recently competed in Loughborough where I ran a personal best of 14.18, which puts me in the top 10 U23 rankings in Europe this season, also putting me in good stead for future international competitions. I am aiming to target the European Athletics Championships in Berlin in 2018, and the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. I am extremely thankful that my athletic ability has been recognised and supported by the University and its trustees."

Jack Hatton-Johnson, BA (Hons) Acting 2017
