AUG Day 2 Wrap Up

TeamMONASH had a great day of competition today.

Monash has two more gold medals! After a very successful two days on the athletics track, we’re currently sitting in third place overall in the Men’s Athletics competition. Daniel Leane’s gold medal in the Men’s Pole Vault was a standout. Daniel vaulted 4.30m’s which was 15cm’s higher than his closest competitor. Our second gold medal in Athletics came from Toby O’Brien who won the Men’s 3000 Metre Steeplechase with a time of 9.33.59. 

Equally as exciting were the Monash Men’s Table Tennis team who broke a 4 year losing streak to Melbourne University today, with their hard fought 8-3 win over our fellow Victorian rivals.

Our women’s Squash team continued their winning streak for the week, with two 4-0 wins against Melbourne University and The University of Western Australia today. Now in the first position in the competition, they are in pole position to win the Gold Medal come Friday.   

Men’s Soccer had an exciting 1-1 draw with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), after having an early lead. UTS were last year’s champions so the draw well and truly cements the team’s position at the top.

Unfortunately storms throughout the Gold Coast called a halt to most of the afternoon competitions today, with a lot of our team’s games being cancelled or called off due to the weather.
