Men’s badminton is the team to beat. Having won the gold medal at the 2016 Australian University, the target is firmly on their heads.
The team is looking as strong as ever, with a victory over rivals the University of Melbourne in the Varsity Challenge, earlier this year, cementing their status going into the competition.
The men’s badminton team have asserted that going back-to-back is not the only goal for the week, but also going through the entire tournament undefeated as a realistic aim.
The team have identified the University of Melbourne and the University of Sydney as difficult opponents. Both are traditionally strong, and are bringing strong teams to try a defeat the reigning champions.
Who are players to watch out for? The team boast Olympian Matthew Chau and are hoping his talent and experience will guide Monash University to another gold medal.
Good luck guys, we know you’ll be amazing! #monashpride #bleedblue #teammonash
