In conjunction with Australian University Sport, the kendo competition of the 2014 Australian University Games was held at the multi purpose Sports Hall on campus at the University of Technology, Sydney.
Seventy-six University student kendo players represented from all over Australia were entered and fought hard to proudly represent their University.
Congratulations to the University of Sydney kendo squad for achieving overall first place in the kendo competition.
The results for category and the draws are below.
At the end of seven days of intense competition in many sports, The University of Sydney has emerged victorious, claiming the coveted title of 2014 Overall Champion University.
In this its 22nd year, the Australian University Games (AUG) attracted over 7,100 student athletes from 41 tertiary institutions across Australia that took part in 32 sport competitions.
The University of Sydney stole the show securing 17 out of the 77 gold medal pennants on offer to be crowned winners over defending champions The University of Melbourne, who were hoping to make it three in a row this year. It would appear there were a number of missed opportunities that proved the difference for the runner up which finished with eight gold medal pennants and eleven silver.
Similarly, Monash University, which placed third overall with seven gold medal pennants and ten silver medal pennants which could have seen them overtake long time rivals Melbourne on the overall tally if they had of been able to convert some of that silver to gold. Fourth place went to another home town university, University of Technology Sydney which took home four gold medal pennants just ahead of The University of Western Australia also on four pennants but in fifth position on a count back.
