We report with great regret Sunday evening one of our athletes, Ailish Sheehan was involved in a serious accident whilst representing Great Britain at the FISU World University Championships. The precise circumstances of the accident remain unclear and are likely to do so for some time to come.
Ailish is currently in a coma but being well looked after in intensive care in a Poznan hospital. The injuries sustained are a fractured skull and a broken arm.
For more information please read the statement from BUCS.
Ailish was selected in the Women’s Coxless Four that won a bronze medal at the Championship and featured in the Women’s Senior Coxed Four that recently won Women’s Henley Regatta.
For any further information please contact David Townsend.
All our thoughts are with Ailish and her family and we pray for a speedy recovery
