Students preparing to head to the Australian University Games
ECU’s 85-strong team headed to Adelaide last week to compete in the 20th annual Australian University games.
Led by team captains Kobi Evans (School of Education & School of Exercise and Health Science) and David Turner (School of Exercise and Health Science) the team competed against universities across Australia in the week-long competition.
ECU’s team has more than doubled since the last time they competed in Adelaide in 2006, with teams across a great range of sports including long jump, high jump, netball, volleyball and AFL.
Congratulations to our women’s beach volleyball and taekwondo teams who both took out the bronze medals in their respective competitions.
“Congratulations to all students who competed in the 2012 Australian University games,” said team Coordinator Vivien Massie.
“The passion and dedication showed by all students was great to see and we look forward to competing again next year at the Gold Coast.”
