Aberystwyth University has been included within London 2012's Pre-Games Training Camp Guide

28 March 2009

We all know that the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games will be held in London but what you may not know is that places much further a field will host athlete training camps. Our Department will be included as a mountain biking training camp in the pre-games training camp brochure. This brochure will be launched during the Beijing Games this summer for participating countries to select where they want to send their teams to train and prepare prior to the Games. Aberystwyth’s location makes it ideal for outdoor activities like mountain biking. If you have an interest in mountain biking check out the following link - Nant yr Arian mountain biking centre.  Dr. Rhys Thatcher, who led the Department’s successful bid to provide a training camp venue said, “We are really pleased to be named in the brochure as this gives us a chance to show the world what Aberystwyth has to offer”.
