BUCS Nationals 2016

In 2016, we took 26 Anglia Ruskin students to BUCS Nationals. We competed in boxing, badminton, swimming, judo and athletics - and brought home eight medals. (Three gold, one silver and four bronze, since you ask, which we won in judo and boxing.)

We're proud of all our students who competed for Anglia Ruskin.

Previous sporting success

In previous years, our athletes have competed in BUCS Nationals and at various events throughout the year. In the space of two years, we won 14 medals, including five golds. We've supported a student to represent a home nations pool team, and two judokas at the European University Games.

If you're selected to represent Anglia Ruskin, our Sport and Active Anglia team will be there to offer financial and organisational support. If you’d like to find out more, please contact our High Performance Sports Coordinator.
