RGU Strikes Gold at BUCS Nationals

There was great success for a number of RGU:Union's sports teams this weekend, as they travelled to Sheffield to compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport National Competition. The event, which brings together six thousand sporting students from universities and colleges across the country took place in Sheffield from the 19th - 21st February.

Our teams ended the weekend with excellent results, with our students bringing back an number of medals. Colin Douglesh from table tennis won a bronze medal, after losing to the eventual winner. Emma Leask, President of the RGU Athletics Club, came in third in the 800m after coming from way behind in the field.

Marcus Morton leapt 1.95m in the high jump which took him into the final where he finished 12th. While our men's climbers came in 31st, and our women's came in 35th.

It was our swimmers who stole the show, with Rachael Masson coming in first place for the 100m freestyle. Our star performer was Kirsty Simpson from swimming who came first in both the 50m and 100m backstroke with a time of 1.02.28 for the 100m, bringing home two gold medals.

RGU was successful in coming seventh out of all universities in the UK for swimming. A massive congratulations to all of those who competed.
