Though UAL is known for its students' artistic prowess, we are also home to a select few elite athletes who manage to straddle the worlds of art and sport.

We currently have 5 athletes in our programme, the most prolific of which is Fine Art student Lizzy Fuller who, when she’s not studying at Chelsea College of Arts, is taking advantage of her proximity to the Thames by working on her rowing technique. Lizzy also took home Gold at the women’s regatta in Nottingham in February, beating the likes of Oxford, Cardiff and Cambridge.

Meanwhile, Judoka Paddy Lish, who recently joined Central Saint Martin’s Foundation in Performance Arts, is the current British Judo Association Schools Champion and recently won a Gold medal at the Den Helder International Tournament. He has also represented UAL to win a silver medal at the London Universities Open.
