Alumnus of St Mary’s University, Twickenham Moe Sbihi MBE finished third in the men’s coxed eight to secure a bronze for Team GB.

The team completed the event in 5:25.73 just 1.09 seconds behind first place, New Zealand, and an agonising 0.13 seconds behind silver medallists Germany. With this achievement, Moe now has three Olympic medals having previously won Gold in the men’s four at Rio 2016, and Bronze in the men’s eight at London 2012.

Moe was a sports scholar at St Mary’s whilst he studied Sport Science with Health, Nutrition and Exercise. Tokyo 2020 is a particularly memorable games for Moe as he was the first Muslim flag bearer for Team GB at the opening ceremony alongside Team GB Sailor Hannah Mills.
