STUDENTS had the chance to use first-class sports facilities Olympic stars such as Jess Ennis have graced.

Those studying sports degrees at University Centre Doncaster took a tour around the English Institute for Sport in Sheffield to see its indoor athletics area, GB boxing centre and the world snooker academy.

Tom Mitchell, higher education co-ordinator for sport at the High Melton campus, said: “I hope it inspires our students to really explore the possibilities that are there for graduates sport science related areas.

“Seeing such athletes in action in such fantastic surroundings certainly gives some real context to the programmes we are delivering.”
