BUCS Indoors saw 21 University of Nottingham athletes compete in a range of track and field events, followed by the strong support in the stands, all wearing the green and gold. The indoor based event, hosted in the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, played host to some of the nation’s best athletes coming from over a 100 universities nationwide.
There were great performances from every Nottingham University athlete, which included several semi-final qualifications and five athletes qualify for finals and an abundance of personal bests!
Unfortunately, our high jumper Emma Lowry suffered what looked like a severe Achilles injury, forcing early withdrawal from the final; on behalf of all of us at the club we wish her a speedy recovery!
A massive well done to everyone who competed! #GreenAndGold
