UNIROOS ENEWS: Farewell from Taipei

After nearly two weeks the Australian Uniroos leave Taipei with smiles, immense gratitude and memories that will last a lifetime.

The Summer Universiade torch was extinguished last night at the official closing ceremony, bringing an end to a multi-sport competition and a city that captured our hearts.

To the volunteers, the organising committee and the crowds that have willed on our Aussies in Taipei, we truly appreciate what you have delivered at these Games.

Xie xie Taipei - we thank you!


Goodbye from Taipei… see you in Naples in 2019

On behalf of the Uniroos team management, led by Chef de Mission Liz Brett, Deputy Chef de Mission Siobhan James and Team General Managers Toni Lourens and Joshua Sear and all at Australian University Sport it’s goodbye from Taipei - we will see you again in Naples, Italy in 2019.
