THREE graduates from Bournemouth University will compete at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Chloe Thomas will represent Wales in singles and women’s doubles table tennis, Noorin Gulam will compete in weightlifting for England and Liam McGarry has been selected for Team England’s powerlifting squad.

All three were identified as talented athletes with the potential to perform on the world stage whilst studying in Bournemouth and received dedicated support from the University’s sports staff and facilities.

Martin Wells, head of high performance sport at Bournemouth University worked with Liam, Chloe and Noorin in their student days.

He said: “All three were exceptional Sport Scholars during their studies and were able to access all aspects of our support services from Strength and Conditioning, Lifestyle Advice, Sport Massage, Sport Psycology, Nutrition Advice, Rehab services and the much-needed financial support.

"The whole of SportBU wish them every success in their preparations and performances during these Commonwealth Games and hope it helps them progress on to other opportunities.”
