  3. Badminton duo claim Ede Clendinnen Shield

Sydney Uni Elite Athlete Program scholarship holders Elena Kwok and Honesto Buendia have placed first, as part of the NSW badminton team, at the 2011 Ede Clendinnen Shield.

The feat was all the more impressive considering that NSW had not won the event since 2002.

Following the team event Kwok went on to reach the semi-finals of the women’s doubles event at the Australian Closed Badminton Championships, while Buendia made the quarter finals of the men’s singles event (receiving an Australian Men’s Singles Ranking of 8).
