FISU in Mourning


LAUSANNE/POZNAN - It is with great sadness that FISU has learned of the passing of BUCS rower Ailish Sheehan. Ailish fell while walking, after competing at the FISU World University Championship for rowing in Poznan, Poland where she won a bronze medal.

The thoughts of all of us at FISU and in the world university sport family are with Ailish's family, her teammates and her friends.
