Hi everyone, I’m Elizabeth – your Sports Officer elected for this year! My job is to represent students views on sporting issues and facilitate changes within the student community.
I have just finished studying a BSc in Sports Performance at Bath which I have thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to applying aspects into my role. Alongside my degree, the experience I had as a student was hugely impacted by sport, working on committees and volunteering in the local area. Throughout my four years at university, I have tried several sports including weightlifting, rugby, rowing, and triathlon, of which two I have represented the BUCS and club on a national scale.
My first real interaction with the SU was towards the end of my first year when I was involved in founding the first-ever Weightlifting and Powerlifting club which I became Secretary in its infancy and Chair in its second year, before sitting on the Sports Executive Committee as Sports Performance Officer in my final year. The roles and sports I took part in over this time was the primary influence on my decision to run for SU Sports Officer. I am excited to get stuck into this role as we transition back into normal life during the upcoming year and ensuring people feel confident, supported, and safe to enjoy sport again at all levels.
Outside of the SU, I am a rugby player, training and playing for Bath Rugby Ladies as a second row. I also enjoy going to the gym, reading, cooking, and baking. I am also always up for trying any new physical activity!
If you would like to discuss any emerging issues around sport, chat about my manifesto, or anything else, please drop me an email. I am extremely excited to represent the student community this year and improve your student experiences with sport.
