Hunt-Davis to speak at BUCS dinner

BUCS has revealed the guest speaker for its upcoming July 11th Awards Dinner – Olympic gold medal winning former rower Ben Hunt-Davis.

Fresh from his role as Chairman at the hugely successful Samsung World Rowing Cup at Eton Dorney, Hunt-Davis will join BBC presenter John Inverdale to recognise the standout performances of student athletes, volunteers and staff over the 2012/13 season.

“I am delighted to be attending the BUCS Awards Dinner,” said Hunt-Davis. “From my experiences, I have seen how important the student sport experience is to the athletes, volunteers and coaches and the contribution it makes to the sport itself. The number of graduates in Team GB in recent Games is testament to this.”


The BUCS Awards Dinner is held at the conclusion of the three day BUCS Conference at Herriot Watt University. For more information, visit
