Eight talented current and former elite sports students are set to make a splash in Paris later this year as they have been announced as part of the cohort of athletes heading to the Summer Olympic Games on behalf of Team GB.

Six current learners and two alumni of the College have been announced for the British squad so far, with a further two students expected to represent international teams.

Current students Alex Cohoon, Freya Colbert, Angharad Evans, Oliver Morgan, Jacob Whittle, and Abbie Wood will be taking to the pool alongside alumni Luke Greenbank and Joe Litchfield, who are also expected to make a splash. Between them, the eight swimmers hold a staggering medal record of 25 gold, 27 silver, and 20 bronze medals across national, European, and international competitions.

Head of Elite Sport at Loughborough College, Matt O’Dowd shared, “This is a fantastic for sport, and we are so excited to see our College community in Paris. This selection really epitomises the dedication and talent of our students and we cannot wait to see Loughborough represented on the international stage.”

Internationally, current learners Kornelia Fiedkiewicz and Cassandre Beaugrand have been announced as swimming and triathlon athletes for Poland and France respectively.

We will be sharing more updates as more students and alumni are announced for the Summer Games.
