With just two events left for British universities, our athletes have already picked up nine golds, eight silvers and 14 bronzes across badminton, judo, karate, table tennis, taekwondo and kickboxing.

31 medals in total have been won by athletes from 15 different universities at the EUSA Championships so far. Three in table tennis, three in kickboxing, two in karate, two in judo and nine in taekwondo, with over a third of the delegation winning silverware and 12 in badminton split between two universities. 

In taekwondo, we have seen students from nine universities return home with medals. The diverse list is made up of: Anglia Ruskin University, Middlesex University, Northumbria University, Teesside University, University of Glasgow, University of Nottingham, University of Portsmouth, University of Salford and University of Strathclyde.  

Over on the court, University of Nottingham and University of Warwick completed a historic Great Britain 1-2 in the badminton team event with the club from the East Midlands pipping their West Midlands rivals, who were making their debut on the European stage, to take the gold medal. 

Speaking about the victories, BUCS medallist from the University of Nottingham Sian Kelly said, “It’s been such an amazing trip for me and the team. Coming away with five golds, a silver and two bronzes as a team is something I know every single one of us is beyond proud of. To be back-to-back champion in two events is something I could have only dreamt of before I left.”

Following a memorable first ever European appearance for University of Warwick badminton, Head Coach Nic Strange commented, “This has been a historic year for Warwick and it's all down to the motivation and support from all the players and staff involved. To achieve a silver medal at the European University Championships was unthinkable four years ago when the programme was established but we did it in our first ever EUSA. I couldn't be prouder of all the players and the dedication shown to get us here. BUCS have been instrumental in supporting us before and during the event, and it wouldn't have been possible without them”.
