Congratulations to Rufus Scholefield, (Graduate Diploma Law) and his Great Britain teammates who recently won gold at the FISU World University Championships. The Championships is the only worldwide student sports tournament and this year’s event in Shanghai, China saw 34 events take place.

Team GB's Mens Eight Team, of which Rufus was a member, competed against Holland, Italy, China, America, and Poland in the final to secure the top prize in rowing.
