Sheffield Hallam University Athletics Club enjoyed their finest ever overall performance at the BUCS Outdoor Athletics Championships.
The team returned from the event with 11 medals from 8 events to complete their most successful ever outdoor championships.
The overall team performance achieved a fantastic sixth position with Joe Dunderdale, Tesni Ward, Karla Drew, Peter Huck, Jess Taylor, Moe Sasegbon, Tim Burn, and the men’s 4 x 400m relay team.
The Championships, held at the Olympic Stadium in London last week, were part of the London 2012 test event series "London Prepares".
Colan Leung, Sheffield Hallam Sports Officer said, "I am so proud of every student who has competed at the championships, but I am especially proud of our medalists who have clearly trained very hard and performed exceptionally at the event.
"The whole weekend has been another incredible spectacle for higher education sport and I'm just so pleased that Sheffield Hallam has once again been able to put itself on the map as a serious contender in student sport."
