10 Universities. 32 sports. One winner

After finishing second at the first iteration of UniSport Australia’s Div 1 Nationals, the University of Sydney are looking to Go One Better in 2019, with this year’s event running from 29th September to 3rd October on the Gold Coast.

Represented by one the largest groups in the competition, Sydney Uni is sending 428 athletes and over 15 staff members, totalling 39 teams (male, female and mixed).

The group will be led by Clare Woods (Football) and Paul Counsell (Hockey).

In last year’s event, Sydney University came home 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.

At the event, a number of students participated in the Div 1 Challenge presented by UniSport on the newly-launched UniMoves app, where students recorded their total number of ‘moves’ and competed against one another for a range of prizes, including a $400 Garmin watch.
