Nottingham Trent University Economics student, Tom Quinn, was among the medals last week, taking a bronze at the ICT Canoe and Slalom Junior / U23 World Championships in Penrith, Australia.

Tom, who is currently in his final year, secured his place on the medal podium during the final of the Under 23 C1M.

The Great Britain and NTU flags were flying high for the final, with NTU students Ryan Westley and Adam Burgess also racing alongside Tom.

The annual competition ran from 23 – 27 April at the Penrith Whitewater Stadium, which was the venue of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. It proved to be a fantastic start to the 2014 international season for the team, taking home a gold, two silvers, and three bronze medals. 11 out of 20 team members secured places in the individuals finals.

Well done to all!
