Loughborough University’s Head of Para Sport, Nik Diaper, said:
“As former Loughborough students, we are incredibly proud of both Sam and Crystal’s achievements and with Sam being a Loughborough-based athlete, we look forward to welcoming him back on campus.
“We wish both of them the very best in the final build-up to the Paralympic Games later this year”
