Katie Reynolds, 23, from Swansea

Former School/College: Olchfa School/ Edinburgh University

Course: Marine Biology

Sport: Orienteering

Ranking/Representation: Great Britain representative at World University Championships and Junior World Championships.

Sports Scholarship: “The Sports Scholarship is a great honour for me, as the University provides excellent support in terms of access to personal trainers, gym facilities and financial help towards training and competition costs. This will benefit me greatly, as it eases the demands of trying to balance athlete and student life. This scholarship will help me to afford training camps and competitions that I would previously be unable to afford, and for this I am very grateful. I am now even more excited for the year ahead, and hope to make improvements so that I am able to proudly represent the University at the World University Championships in 2018.”
