From 3-14 July students from across Australia have been competing in the World University Games in Gwanju, Korea.
The World University Games is the second biggest multi-sporting event behind the Olympic Games and it is a massive achievement to be selected to compete. Four Monash students were selected to represent Australia at the World University Games.
Nneka Okpala competed in the Women's Triple Jump and came 8th overall after qualifying 6th for the final.
Aimee Clydesdale was in the Women's Basketball team that came 5th. The team only lost one of their six games throughout the entire tournament to Japan in the Quarter Finals.
Christopher Perrot was in the Men's Water Polo team who ranked 7th in the World University Games.
Ann-Louise Slee represented Australia in the Badminton team and competed in mixed doubles, women's doubles and the individual Australian teams. The Australian team ranked 21st, while her partnership of Slee/Tam in the Women's doubles came 27th and her partnership of Slee/Vuong in the mixed doubles came 24th.
An additional mention has to be made for Edward Denis - the coach of the Australian Women's Water Polo team that won one of the four Gold Medals Australia received in the tournament. Edward is a Monash graduate and inductee in Monash University's Sport Hall of Fame.
We're incredibly proud of all of our student athletes achievements from World University Games and are excited to see their progression!
