About Jacob

Jacob Lange is a first year postgraduate student at Warwick University studying Medicine. He comes from Gloucestershire but has been living in Cambridge for the past 3 years.

“My main passion in life is athletics, specifically Hammer throw. It’s a really niche sport but it is incredibly competitive at the high end and the UK is currenlty one of the best places in the world at it. As I do such an individual sport it’s great to be part of the University athletics club as I am able to meet new people and enjoy the great uni social scene.”

When he’s not at the track training or competing Jacob spends time on YouTube trying to pick up any technical points or new training exercises that he can. His coach is still based in Gloucestershire so he also travels back regularly to see her.
