About me

Jonny Tye; Mechanical Engineer, Flatwater Canoeist and classic Mini Cooper driver! I am studying Mechanical engineering at the University of Surrey alongside training up to 16 times a week as a GB canoeist. This year was my best sporting year to date winning two silver medals at the World Marathon Championships in Singapore (singles and doubles) I also represented Great Britain as an U18 at the European and World Sprint Championships, making finals at both events in Olympic disciplines. So far my first year at Surrey has been amazing and Mechanical engineering was definitely for me!
