** POSTPONED ** Pint of Perse: The Elite Athlete with Glenn Kirkham
Date: 20 Oct 2020, 7.00PM
Based on the popular ‘Pint of Science’ events, we invite you to pour yourself a drink and enjoy a ‘Pint of Perse’. Members of the Perse community will be joining us for a series of virtual seminars, speaking about a topic related to their work and interests, before opening the floor to answer questions.
The first seminar of the term will be delivered by former Hockey Olympian and current Director of Sport at The Perse, Glenn Kirkham, at 7pm on Tuesday 20th October.
Making his international senior debut in 2002, Glenn quickly rose up the ranks to become England’s Hockey Team Captain between 2006 and 2007. Glenn went to school at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Alford and went on to achieve a BSc in Sports Science at Loughborough University. He started playing field Hockey from a very young age at his local club in Alford, as well as playing football for the youth team of Scunthorpe United FC.
He’s competed in England hockey teams, taking part in World Cups and European Championships all across the world, as well as competing in the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics, where the GB team finished in 4th place.
