With 15 sports represented and a diverse range of Olympic medallists, internationally recognised and developing athletes, this is among our strongest list of recipients yet.

“The ever-improving standards of the support structure available to our highest performing athletes and teams in Trinity has enabled a continued growth in applications. Improving our capability to attract and support talented athletes is a key objective for Trinity Sport, and this continual process will ensure that Trinity remains a strong destination of choice for the very best student athletes both domestically and internationally.
