Hall of Fame

As part of the Centenary celebrations this year, BUCS are creating a Hall of Fame to commemorate the amazing achievements and efforts of athletes, coaches and supporting staff over the past 100 years.

Tracing back to October 2018, a working group consisting of members from the founding 10 universities met to formulate a criterion that they felt was fundamental for nominees to meet in order to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The group researched several other Hall of Fame models from a variety of Universities as well as those created by some NGBs. Based upon their findings, they found the following criteria fundamental:

- A graduated student (normally) From any recognised educational establishment between 1919  present

- Attended a British University as a student or represented the GB student team at World Level

- Retired from International Sport in which they are nominated in

On top of this, given the vast number of athletes at University sport level, they outlined the achievements that nominees are expected to meet:

- Medalled at any Olympic, Paralympic or World Championships at any time in their sporting career

- Achieved 50+ caps when representing their country (dependant on the sport)

- Achieved some notable distinction (i.e. world record holder)

Nominations for the hall of fame will open on Friday 15 February. Before nominations open, we are interested in feedback from our members on the above criteria. If you have any feedback, please fill out the form below before close of business on Wednesday 16 January.
