Trampolining World Cup gold medallist Bryony Page and Sheffield’s London 2012 volleyball star Dami Bakare were amongst the sporting heroes honoured with scholarships at the University of Sheffield’s Elite Sports Performance Scheme awards ceremony last week. The duo were amongst 40 awarded the £1,000 scholarships, at either level one or two level. Sheffield Steeler Drew Fata and triathlon queen Catherine Faux were also presented with awards by Dan Walker, a former University of Sheffield student and current Football Focus presenter. “Sheffield has such a rich sporting heritage and current champions in all sorts of disciplinesm” Dan said.

“I’d like to think that this scheme is doing its bit to make sure that continues.”
