On 30th September, current Kellogg student and Paralympic champion Grace Clough MBE competes for Britain in the PR3 mixed coxed four at the 2017 Rowing World Championships in Florida.

Grace (MSc candidate, Sociology) only took up rowing in late 2013 but is already a Paralympic gold-medallist and double World Champion. In an impressive unbeaten run, she was a member of the LTA mixed coxed four that won gold at the 2014 and 2015 World Championships, then won gold again at the Paralympic Games at Rio 2016. Her success was recognised with the award of an MBE for services to rowing in the 2017 New Year’s Honours list.

Together with Paul Bennett (MSc Computer Science, 2013), Grace was guest of honour at this year’s Celebration of Sport Guest Night Dinner in March. She also gave an entertaining talk on her experiences as a Paralympic athlete.

Watch Grace live on BBC Two from 15:00 on Saturday 30 September, or shortly after broadcast you can catch up on the BBC iPlayer.
