Hi, I’m Hugo and I’m a first-year PhD student on the Wellcome Neuroscience PhD programme, specifically researching the neuroscience of mental health. I actually compete in two different sports – my priority at the moment is athletics, in which I run the 800m, but I also compete in Modern Pentathlon, and in fact it was through pentathlon that I first got started in competitive sport.

Debbie Alawode; Weightlifting.

My name’s Deborah Alawode, I’m a 2nd Year Medical Student and I’ve been weightlifting for around 3 and a half years. My weightlifting career began after my coach did a 6-week taster course at my High School. At the end of the course, he asked if I’d consider training regularly at his club just down the road from my school. Since I thoroughly enjoyed the course, I decided to take him up on his offer.
