Commonwealth medals for Brunel alumni
Two Brunel alumni took home medals from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Ashley Bryant won silver in the Decathlon. The 2013 Sports Science graduate took to the podium following an incredible PB in the pole vault.
Bryant produced a javelin of 66.24m, a 4:38.24 1500m and the all-important 4.07m pole vault for a total of 8,109 points to secure his own debut international medal. Canadian Damian Warner scored 8,282 points to win gold, with Grenada's Kurt Felix took bronze.
Nigel Levine (Engineering 2013) then took home the Gold in the men’s 4x400m relay, with his Brunel Athletic Centre training partner, Conrad Williams. Margaret Adeoye, who also trains regularly at Brunel, made the semi-finals in the 400m.
Other Brunel graduates to feature in the Games included Nathan Fox (International Business, 2013) who made it to the final of the Triple Jump and Chloe Spiteri (Sport Sciences, 2011) who just missed out on a bronze medal in the wrestling.
