Why Biological Natural Sciences?

In particular I am interested in the physiology and neuroscience behind performance sport which has both an academic and personal appeal to me.

Why Cambridge?

Cambridge is a city yet the green areas and river make it seem like you are far from the hustle and bustle of an urban place – it’s great!


At CUWBC I am surrounded by such a special support team and it is impossible not to feel inspired by the work that goes into making every second of racing count. But above all, it is the other girls in the gym and on the water who make the club what it is.
