West Norfolk Paralympian Jody Cundy has received an honorary degree from Cambridge’s Anglia Ruskin University

He was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Health Sciences Degree on Tuesday evening at a ceremony held at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge.

Anglia Ruskin’s Vice Chancellor Professor Michael Thorne, alongside students from the Faculty of Science and Technology, made the award.

Professor Thorne said: “Jody is a Paralympic and world swimming and cycling champion, one of a very select group of elite athletes to win gold medals in two different sports. He is an inspiration to anyone seeking to overcome adversity.”

Jody, 33, of Walpole St Andrew, won 23 international swimming medals before switching his attention to the velodrome.

The five-time Paralympic champion won a bronze medal in the 4km Pursuit at London 2012.

He met children at schools in Wisbech last week when he toured the town on a vintage fire engine.
