Bond University receives top sports honour

Topping all competitors, Bond University was named ‘Australian University Sport Overall Per Capita Champion’ at the annual Australian University Sport Conference in Sydney recently.

The per capita award winner is determined by measuring each university’s points and results against their student population.

Bond University received the top award based on team participation and results in all of the 2009 Australia sanctioned events, including the Northern University Games, Australian University Games and Winter Sports.

Bond University’s Institute for Sport Assistant Manager Shannon Zunker said the per capita award gives Bond the opportunity to show the quality of our teams. 

 “We won this award primarily because of our teams’ placements at the regional and national games last year.

“Besides Bond, the University of Ballarat is the only other university to place first in both the regional and national games back in 1994.

“Although we have smaller teams, the award proves that we pack a good punch,” said Mr Zunker.

The University’s sports centre and student association have worked together diligently to build strong, competitive sporting teams.

Sports President of the Student Association and swimming silver medallist Liam Auer said that without the University’s sports centre and the student association working together receiving this award would not have been possible.

“The award is a reflection of the University’s commitment to the games and the holistic student driven efforts,” he said.
