The University, in partnership with Kent County Council, is looking forward to hosting the long awaited biennial Kent’s Sporting Legends event, where the achievements of Kent’s elite athletes will be celebrated.

Dame Julia Goodfellow, Vice-Chancellor of the University, commented ‘It is particularly appropriate that we should do so in this Olympic and Paralympic year, when we have seen such outstanding performances from our nation’s athletes.’

Graham Holmes, Director of Sport at Kent commented, ‘The evening is a pure celebration of sport, bringing together elite athletes from the University and across the region to reflect on past achievements and current successes, as well as upcoming talent who represent the future of sport. The dedication and efforts of our top athletes is an inspiration and it is fitting to acknowledge that with the county’s pre-eminent sports celebration event, Kent’s Sporting Legends.’

The event will be an evening packed full of musical, dance and sporting performances and will also include several live interviews with notable athletes.
