Adventure Sports Coaching students and an up-and-coming British climber have teamed up as part of a mutually beneficial collaboration.
Third year undergraduates Alex Munnery, Becky Taylor and Jonathan Hyde are helping Connor Byrne with conditioning and nutritional advice, as he strives to become a regular member of the British climbing team.
Connor asked UCLan for help through the 'Rising Stars Programme'. Associate Lecturer Keith McGregor said: "This is a great opportunity for our students to work with some of the country's top sports people and gain experience in strength and conditioning.
"It's a great honour for them to work with Connor and his Coach Paul Dewhurst. We hope to be able to help Connor achieve his dream of becoming a regular member of the British senior squad."
