Alumna Sophie Christiansen, who graduated with a Masters degree in Mathematics from Royal Holloway, University of London, became the country's first triple gold medallist of the London 2012 Paralympics after claiming victory in equestrian's Grade Ia freestyle yesterday (Tuesday).

Sophie, an Honorary Fellow of the College, also secured a British Paralympic record haul of 11 medals in one Games for Great Britain's equestrian team.

Her patriotic musical freestyle routine yesterday included excerpts from Land of Hope and Glory and also featured Big Ben's chimes plus a quotation from Shakespeare's Richard II, providing a fitting conclusion to the equestrian programme.
