Joe Peterson

About Joe

"I fell in love with canoeing from the moment I first sat in a boat.

All the early mornings and tough sessions are worth it for the amazing places I have been lucky enough to compete at, the spectacular views whilst on the water, and all the amazing friends and memories I have made. The scholarship programme has allowed me to meet new friends and to push on both competitively and academically, and I am incredibly fortunate to be given this support by the university to continue doing something which I love so much."
