Jack Burnell's sporting achievements video transcript

Jack Burnell speaks in front of a climbing wall. 

I found actually studying here at Derby and juggling my sporting career fairly easy. I think that was mainly down to the support and guidance and help I've got from the likes of Donna Kellogg and Derby sports team, they for me were the ones that were the kind of go-between between the lecturers and the deadlines and everything that I had to juggle and I think one piece of advice that would give anyone that was trying to juggle the two things would be communication.

I think it's just having that conversation whether it be with your lecturer or with members of the sports team just be open and honest and if you need any help then just ask.

So the pinnacle of my sporting career was definitely the Olympic Games for me that was a dream of mine since I was a very small child, it's the pinnacle of anyone sporting career it's the biggest stage in the world and to have the honour to go and put on that Team GB vest was, you know, all my dreams come true as a kid so without a doubt that was the best achievement of mine.
