USC to congratulate Commonwealth Games athletes

30 Apr 2018

The University of the Sunshine Coast will stage a welcome home ceremony tomorrow (Tuesday 1 May) for its 17 athletes who competed at the recent Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill will congratulate the USC-based athletes and three coaching and support staff who took part in the Games during a special event at the USC Art Gallery from 10.30am.

The athletes included nine USC Spartans swimmers, four Sunshine Coast Lightning netballers, three Australian Cycling Academy cyclists and a USC student who swims with another local club.

Between them, they snared a total of 12 medals, comprising five gold, three silver and four bronze.

Professor Hill said it was wonderful to watch the outstanding performances of the USC-based athletes during the Commonwealth Games.

He said their efforts were a source of pride for the University community, the entire Sunshine Coast and for the whole of Australia.
