After results day yesterday, we are looking forward to welcoming our new freshers in September, but we now also have to say goodbye to our graduating members! Over the next few posts we want to celebrate some of our athletes who are moving on from UoNBC.. First up, Adam Giambrone.
Adam joined UoNBC in 2014 as Physics undergrad from Walton RC. 4 years, 2 degrees and 9 BUCS medals later, it's time to release his little legs into the wild as he starts his senior career at @moleseybc in September. 💪
Adam has been extremely successful throughout his time at UoNBC with multiple wins at Notts City, both the Metropolitan and Marlow Regattas, as well as a more recent HRR qualification in our Temple 8+, he was also part of the Bronze medal crew from the 2018 IURR in Xi'an, China. 🏆
His personal highlights include his year spent as Men's captain, and the following season where he collected a Gold medal at EUSA in the LM2-, as well as his time spent modelling for Godfreys. 😍
"I first joined Taekwondo about last October having never done any kind of martial arts before as I hadn’t really settled into any other societies and wanted to join a club that allowed me to meet other people as well as keep fit. I’m a fairly quiet person so I was nervous about just turning up to a session on my own, but it was totally worth it!
Everyone was super friendly and while training with the rest of the club I started to really enjoy the sport itself, even competing! I thought I would mainly do poomsae (patterns learnt like routines) given my background in dancing, but sparring for the first time this year has really given me a taste for it and is something I didn’t think I would enjoy until trying it.
Meeting (and kicking) lots of different people from all different backgrounds really helped me come out of my shell and I am hoping to continue to build my confidence the coming year as a New Member’s Rep. My advice to people who are nervous is to just go for it!" -Maria Stuart, New Member's Rep. .
CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE THAT GOT INTO NOTTS!
