Australian University Games results

[Posted: 10 Oct 2016]

Perth welcomed the Australian University Games this September with over 41 rival universities and 7, 000 students competing across 29 different sports.

The five day event is the largest annual multisport event in the southern hemisphere. Curtin University placed 9th overall out of 41 universities with outstanding results from participating athletes. 

Most notable mention was swimmer Georgia Truscott receiving seven medals over the duration of the carnival for both individual and relay races.

Olivia Lyons received a Gold Medal for Women’s Hammer Throw with a throw of 40.51m and Julian Konle received Gold in Men’s Long Jump with 7.65m, along with Claudia Pisano who also won Gold in Women’s Golf.

In team sports Curtin qualified for three gold medal matches with our Tenpin Bowling team coming out with Gold after an undefeated tournament. Along with our Women’s Futsal team who also managed to have an undefeated week and secure the Gold in extra time against University of Sydney.

Jazmin Nash received Silver in Women’s Shot Put along with Willian Redpath in Men’s Judo and Georgia Truscott in five swimming events. Our Men’s Hockey were defeated by UWA in the Gold Medal match and also received Silver.

Curtin achieved Bronze across several sports including Fencing, Basketball, Table Tennis, Netball, Lawn Bowls, Rowing, Squash, Judo, Long Jump, Swimming and Golf.

Overall the Games were a great success for Curtin University and we look forward to next year on the Gold Coast.
