The University provided heat acclimation support for Tom and 19 other athletes training to compete in this year's race.

The heat acclimation lab is in high demand in the run up to the Marathon des Sables as it replicates the conditions in the Sahara. The facilities are also used for practical work and research by students on several of the Faculty's courses; including the sport science degree which recently retained its place as the highest ranked in London and 10th in the country in the Guardian newspaper's 2018 University rankings....
