Sophie Christiansen OBE

MSci Mathematics, 2011 RHBNC and Honorary Fellow

Sophie is a 5 times Paralympic Gold medallist in Dressage and was the only member of Team GB to win 3 Golds at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. Sophie also won 2 Gold and 1 Silver medals at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing and, at the age of 16, a Bronze Medal at the 2004 Paralympics Games in Athens. She has also won Gold medals in the European and World Championships. Sophie said, “The build-up to Beijing occurred during my second year at Royal Holloway. The College was so supportive, they even arranged for me to take one of my exams early in the morning so I could get away to shoot an advert for the Paralympics with Sir Paul McCartney."
