University of Cambridge hosts Sports Award that includes Imogen Grant among the list of winners





Rower Imogen Grant was among the winners at the recent University of Cambridge Sport Awards.

More than 200 students, staff and members of the wider community came together in a transformed Sports Centre to recognise the breadth of sporting talent and achievement at Cambridge.

And it was Trinity College’s Grant that picked up the coveted Sports Person of the Year prize after a year on the water which included six BUCS Regatta medals in 2022, as well as back-to-back European Rowing Championships gold medals. Grant also showed her cycling credentials by winning BUCS on wheels.

Cambridge University Triathlon Club picked up the Club of the Year gong, while Hares & Hounds’ resounding 5-0 Varsity victory saw them win the Team of the Year category.

Following on from Grant’s success, Trinity’s Matthew Griffiths was another rowing winner as he scooped the Unsung Hero accolade.

St Catharine’s student Tom Wade clinched the Sports Personality of the Year award for his work with the cycling club, while the Newcomer of the Year award was shared between table tennis player Charlotte Bardsley (Sidney Sussex) and basketball player Jordan Mubako (St John’s). As for Sporting Moment of the Year prize, that was collected by Chike Pilgrim on behalf of the amateur boxing club.
