Going for Gold

This weekend sees four Leeds alumni and students representing Team Great Britain at the London Olympics.

Alumnus Matt Holland and Leeds student Ed Scott, both goalkeepers for Team GB’s Men’s Water Polo will be competing on Sunday, in the first preliminary round of the competition against Romania at 6.20pm. They face a tough, though not impossible challenge, with Team GB coming up against the Gold, Silver and Bronze medallists from Beijing in their group, but we’re sure they will rise to the challenge!

Sunday will also see Leeds alumnus Rebecca Gallantree compete in the Women’s Synchronized Diving 3m Springboard heats and Final at 3pm and Ashleigh Ball will be stepping up to represent Team GB in the preliminary round for Women’s Hockey against Japan at 7pm.

If you don't get a chance to tune in this weekend, check back here on Monday where we will update you on how they got on and what's coming up for our Leeds competitors for the rest of the week.
