The Big Screen Portsmouth — starting this weekend — will screen the BBC One Saturday Night entertainment programme Strictly Come Dancing, supporting University of Portsmouth Alumna, Lauren Steadman.
The University Sports Scholar and World Champion Paratriathlete will dance the waltz with her partner AJ Pritchard on the BBC One show from 6.15pm on Saturday night.
Students and staff have wished University alumna Lauren Steadman the best of luck ahead of her first performance. The video, which can be seen below, features the Vice-Chancellor, Graham Galbraith, Head of Sport and Recreation, Paul Tilley, and students from the Athletic Union.
Lauren, who completed a Master’s degree in Business and Management at the University, has been a Sports Scholar at the University for the past five years. She recently regained her world title, to add to her six European titles and silver medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. The University continues to support Lauren today as part of her quest to win gold at Tokyo 2020.
