Alumni represent Canada at 2017 Summer Universiade

For 11 BC Games alumni heading back to school this September, the best part of their summer might be the memories they made representing Canada at the 2017 Summer Universiade.  This international multi-sport event is organized for university student athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU).  The Games are staged every two years and the 29th version of this event took place in Taipei, Taiwan August 19-30.

Team Canada was one of 141 nations to take part in the event along with 11,000 student athletes and staff.  Competition took place in 14 sports with Team Canada winning 13 medals - three in athletics, two in swimming, two in diving and one in weightlifting.
