    WHY 2012 HAS BEEN GREAT FOR SARAH STEVENSON

    November 21st, 2012

    SARAH STEVENSON picked up an honorary doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University yesterday and admitted some really are as important as an Olympic medal.

     The 29-year-old former Loughborough College student and current Flames ambassador suffered disappointment when she was eliminated in the first round of the -67kg Taekwondo competition at London 2012.

     But she explained why it had still been a fantastic year for her.

     “I’m privileged to have been an athlete for the past 20 years and would like to thank the University for honouring me. Things like the MBE and being chosen to read the athletes’ oath at the Olympics are just as important to me as an athletics medal round my neck. I will do my best to promote and support the University.”

     Sarah, who has competed in four Olympic Games and became the first member of Team GB to win a medal in the sport at Beijing in 2008, has won many plaudits for her views on sport and life.

     She regained the world title in 2011 – a year in which both her parents died – and consistently maintained that success at London 2012 wasn’t everything as she fought bravely to recover from surgery.
