Bond University named Australian University Sport champions

Bond University has once again triumphed in the sporting arena, taking out the 2011 Australian University Sport Per Capita champions title.

Beating competitor universities including the University of Queensland, Monash and the University of Western Australia, Bond walks away with 2011 Championship for their performance at the Australian University Games and Championship events.

Bond University Vice-Chancellor Emeritus Professor Robert Stable praised the student involvement saying it is a true testament to the Bond student spirit.

“This is an exciting achievement for the Bond University sporting teams and shows the rich diversity within the sports offered at Bond while also demonstrating the great sense of community our students have,” said Professor Stable.

More than 250 Bondies joined students across the nation participating in a wide range of sports including basketball, athletics, skiing and beach volleyball throughout the year.

Bond University Campus Life Coordinator Jackie Heffernan attributed the Bondy Bullsharks’ success to their dedicated training regime and organisation.

“It really came down to the devotion of the students; the team captains put a lot of sweat into training and getting the teams ready for the competitions,” explained Jackie.

“This has paid off with the Bond team boasting four gold medals, five silver medals and six bronze medals from the Australian University Games held earlier this year.”

The students played their respective sports dressed in their newly launched sports uniforms, courtesy of Canterbury and Vachie, showing off their blue and gold colours with pride.

The students will now ramp up their training to take on the rival regional universities at the Northern University Games in Lismore next July.  The Australian University Games will be held in Adelaide in September 2012.
