In 2018 Sydney University competed in the first ever iteration of UniSport Australia’s Div 1 Nationals.

The competition saw the top 10 unis across 33 competitions compete against one another, vying for championship glory in their individual sports, and overall.

With one of the largest University groups at the competition, the University of Sydney sent 410 athletes and 25 staff to the Gold Coast. This equated to 40 teams (male, female and mixed) who competed across 26 sports. The group was led by team captains, Alex and Issie. Alex (Baseball) is a D. Medicine student and Issie (Netball) is a B. Commerce (Liberal Studies) student. Both are members of the University’s Elite Athlete Program.

In the 26 sports contested, Sydney University came away with eight pennants, six silver and eight bronze medals, plus a number of individual gold, silver and bronze medals in sports such as swimming, fencing, table tennis, cycling and taekwondo.
