On Saturday 26th February 2022 two of our students represented the University at Individual BUCS competitions in Fencing and Judo.
Vincent Franz who is studying a Masters in Security, Intelligence and Diplomacy travelled to London to compete in the London and South East competition. Competing in the Men's Epee event in a field of 15 it was set to be a good day of competition. Vincent made it through to the final where he met a student from Brunel University and it was a tight affair with Vincent taking the gold medal with a 15-14 win.
Matthew Sexton who is studying a PGCE travelled to Walsall to compete in the BUCS Judo Championships. Competing in the Men's (1 Kyu & Above) Under 100kg category the athletes were split into two pools where in order to progress a top 2 finish was needed. Matthew came second in his pool finishing behind the current British Champion which secured him a semi-final spot. In the semi-final Matthew lost to a student from Keele but this was a fantastic performance to claim the Bronze medal.
Well done to both Vincent and Matthew for their achievements over the weekend - we are really proud of you!!
