Dr Cundy, I presume? Jody awarded honorary degree at Anglia Ruskin University
PARALYMPIAN Jody Cundy was hailed as an “inspiration to anyone seeking to overcome adversity” as he collected an honorary degree from Anglia Ruskin University yesterday.
The Walpole St Andrew star was awarded an honorary Doctor of Health Sciences degree at last night’s graduation ceremony at the Corn Exchange, in Cambridge.
He received the honour from Professor Michael Thorne, Anglia Ruskin’s Vice Chancellor, alongside students from the Faculty of Science and Technology.
Prof Thorne said: “Jody is a Paralympic and world swimming and cycling champion, one of a very select group of elite athletes to win gold medals in two different sports.
“He is an inspiration to anyone seeking to overcome adversity.”
