London Branch: Olympic Champions Panel

17 October 2017, 6.00 PM - 17 October 2017, 9.30 PM

British Olympic Association, 60 Charlotte Street, London, W1T 2NU.

The London Branch of the University of Bristol Alumni is delighted to invite alumni and friends to their special Olympic panel event. 

The event – usually an annual lecture – will be preceeded by a short AGM and promises a very different experience! 

The Branch is delighted to be joined by three very special guests: Hannah Mills MBE, Tom Mitchell and Georgie Twigg MBE, who all won medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics, for a panel discussion. Chaired by Matt Paine, the University’s Elite Performance Sports Manager, the panel will include a Q & A session to make sure you can put your questions to Bristol's Olympians.

Tickets include a food and drink reception and will allow plenty of time to network with fellow alumni.

We are also delighted that the University Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Hugh Brady, is joining us at the event. Professor Brady will give a short presentation on the University’s exciting and ambitious development programme.

It should be a fascinating evening.

About the athletes

Our three special guests were all members of the Performance Squad of athletes at the University of Bristol, which helps talented student athletes continue with their sporting careers without compromising their academic progress. Georgie Twigg, a former Law student, was the second University of Bristol alumna to win a gold medal in Rio after Hannah Mills (right, pictured with partner Saskia Clark) netted top honours in the women's 470 sailing. Tom Mitchell captained Team GB's rugby sevens in Rio, where he led the team to win a silver medal. ‌
