Hall of Fame

As part of the Centenary celebrations this year, BUCS is launching a Hall of Fame to celebrate the 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 have formulated the following criteria for BUCS Hall of Fame inductees: 

- A graduated student (normally) from any recognised educational establishment from 1919  to 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: 

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

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

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

Nominations for the hall of fame are now open and for this year's first round of inductees and will close on Friday 5 April. The first group of inductees will be announced over the summer of 2019.
