It's amazing where you find a Queen's logo!
Here are Robin Miedzybrodzki and Tom Lord, Olympic beach volleyball hopefuls, wearing the Queen's logo during their recent tournament in Brazil. Following the College's fund-raising initiatives for the pair last term, they have been competing hard to secure a place in the Olympics this summer. They had a great start to the season in the Brazil tournament where they played exceedingly well and were closely watched by the GB selectors – after this tournament they were ranked as the first British pair. Unfortunately their second tournament in Poland was not so successful and they were knocked out by a very strong team from Austria. However the other British teams were in the same situation. Currently Robin and Tom are going into their third tournament in China and hopefully this will be as successful as the first – this is the Grand Slam so the most important one to play well in!
We are looking forward to welcoming Robin and Tom back to the College later in the term.
