Jess becomes first inductee into BUCS Hall of Fame


The nominations process for the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Hall of Fame has entered its final two weeks.

The Hall of Fame is being launched as part of the BUCS centenary celebrations this year, with the organisation planning to recognise the achievements of athletes, coaches and support staff.

BUCS confirmed last month that Jessica Ennis-Hill had become the first inductee into the Hall of Fame.

Ennis-Hill attended the University of Sheffield and won a bronze medal in the heptathlon at the 2005 Summer Universiade at Izmir in Turkey.

She went on to secure Olympic gold at London 2012 having been the face of Games, before winning silver at Rio 2016.
