Gallery: Aussie pride as Uniroos march in opening ceremony

Australian pride was in full display as a large contingent of Australia's best student-athletes paraded around at the official 2017 Summer Universiade opening ceremony in Taipei last night.

 

Leading Team Australia into Taipei Stadium was Macquarie University student and 2015 Summer Universiade water polo gold medallist Pascalle Casey as flagbearer.

As one of the first countries to enter during the parade of nations, Australia was unaffected by the protest outside the stadium that temporarily delayed other athletes from the parade.

An experience to behold, the Australian team was warmly welcomed by the enthusiastic crowd of 23,000.
