2 years ago I was National Champion in my sporting career, I had to stop due to health issues, spending time in hospital.

I do wish to get back into sport, preferably after I finish my A-Levels. I have been doing light training in gym but not too often, but I do want to train more when I can.

Would universities find this appealing to take me onto their courses and would a title like this allow me to potentially to get a scholarship?

I think it's appealing to get you onto the courses but not for the scholarship, I know at my uni you have to be still doing the sport when you apply..

Which uni is that, if I may ask?

The reason I'm not doing it now is due to illness.to be honest that can't be helped really.

And would the title make me stand out amongst other applicants?

You should call the uni you have applied to confirm. They expect you to still be doing the sports you were doing and also planning to do it during uni (at a national level), and also evidence and reference.

would they be lenient if the break was due to illness? And I haven't sent off UCAS yet.

Ask them, as they all have e different criteria; not to mention some a more strict than others.
