John Atkinson honoured!

John Atkinson was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Loughborough University for both outstanding services to the University and British Sport.
The Vice-Chancellor of Loughborough University, Prof. David Wallace CBE, DI, FRS, FR Eng., has addressed the invitation on behalf of the Authorities of the University. The congregation will take place later in 2004.
John is obviously delighted, especially as the new National Analyses Centre and World Class Headquarters, in which he played a large part in securing, will be completed later this month.
