A BU student will join the Team GB Judo team after receiving a bronze medal at the British Judo Senior Championships.
Sport BU scholar Donna Riggs competed in the senior women under 78kg category at the Championships, which took place in Sheffield.
Despite going into the event ranked 9th, Donna gained the bronze medal – the first time she has medalled.
She will now have the opportunity to join the Great Britain team for 2016, with access to coaches and facilities at the Centre of Excellence in Walsall, training with elite athletes on the squad.
Donna said: “I have managed to get into this event a number of times but I have never managed to medal so to leave here this year with a medal and a chance at fighting for Great Britain is an amazing feeling.
“Big thank you to my coaches, training partners and to Bournemouth University Sports for enabling me to get there.”
