We are delighted to announce that Olympic medallist Holly Bradshaw has joined In2scienceUK in the role of Ambassador.
Holly has an impressive sporting career, becoming the first British pole vaulter to reach the Olympic podium, successfully taking the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Holly is a true trailblazer, having broken the British record 8 times, and crowned British Champion on 14 separate occasions.
Holly shares our passion for science, and this is reflected in her scientific approach to pole vault. When Holly isn’t training, she is completing her master’s in psychology, Holly has also successfully had one of her scientific papers published.
Ty Watson, Head of Development, for In2scienceUK commented on this new relationship:
“The opportunity to work with Holly is incredibly exciting, Holly is an accomplished athlete leading the field in British Pole Vault. Holly shares our passion for STEM and feels strongly about social mobility and empowering young people. We believe Holly will help inspire young people on the In2scienceUK programme, alongside working with us to reach new audiences as a charity.”
By becoming an official ambassador for In2scienceUK, Holly is the first British Athlete to promote a charity on her kit during the Diamond League competition in Birmingham.
Holly commented on her new role with In2scienceUK:
“I am a proud ambassador for In2scienceUK, working with the charity to encourage young people from under-represented backgrounds to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths. As an ambassador for In2ScienceUK, I hope this can shed a different light on science, and inspire young people to be curious about a career in STEM”
Holly states that it was a natural choice to collaborate with In2scienceUK, as she is data driven in her approach to pole vault. Holly’s sport is a physics equation and a psychology equation combined together, solving this double equation continues to excite Holly as a professional athlete.
