  • UQ’s Women’s Judo team finished the top university following a haul of six medals at the Australian Uni Games.

Almost 400 UQ students combined to win more than 70 medals, with Team UQ claiming gold medal pennants in six sports (Hockey, Judo, Sailing, Tennis, Touch, and Ultimate).

UQ’s Sailing team scored back-to-back AUG gold medals, winning all 29 of its races across the three-day regatta.

UQ’s Women’s Judo team finished the top university following a haul of six medals, while UQ’s Men’s Tennis squad defeated Macquarie University 3-2 in the gold medal final.

Team UQ ranked second across eight sports, including Athletics, Beach Volleyball, Cycling, Fencing, and Rowing.
