Julia Bleasdale (Engineering, 2000) has been selected to represent Team GB in the 5,000 and 10,000 metres at London 2012. ‘My time at Pembroke was so important in my running development,’ she says. We wish her every success, and hope to welcome her back to College in the Michaelmas term.

Update: Julia ran two personal best times in her events at the Olympics: 30:55.63 in the women’s 10,000m (8th) and 15:02.00 in heat 2 for the 5,000m, faster than the winner in the final in which she came 8th. Well done Julia!
