With over 600 Monash University students, playing in over 30 sports, across six days, the 2014 Australian University Games ended with Monash taking home the bronze medal.


Monash and Melbourne University battled it out for second and third place, with Melbourne University just getting in front of Monash by one gold medal.

Director of TeamMONASH, Martin Doulton praised the effort of all the athletes who represented Monash this year.

“It is outstanding to see over 600 students represent Monash so passionately. Placing third is a fantastic effort and we are extremely proud of all the athletes,” Mr Doulton said.

Monash won seven gold medals in women’s basketball, women’s beach volleyball, women’s netball, men’s and women’s taekwondo, and women’s softball. Monash also took home 10 silver, and eight bronze medals.

TeamMONASH™ athletes were awarded a staggering 45 green and gold nominations. The green and gold merit awards are selected to acknowledge, recognise and reward outstanding performances by individual athletes on the day.

Mr Doulton is looking forward to the 2015 Australian University Games,

“We will come back better and stronger for the 2015 Australian University Games,” Mr Doulton said.

2014 AUG Wrap-Thank You


TeamMONASH wants to extend a massive thanks to all TeamMOANSH athletes, volunteers, staff, and supporters. 

Thanks to them, Monash University had a wonderful performance in this year’s Australian University Games (AUG). 

Although the games is over, TeamMONASH will be back for the 2015 AUG faster, fitter, and keener than ever.

Team Profile: CYCLING



The cycling team consists of six male and two female cyclists and their trustworthy sports trainer. Although this is the first time competing at the AUGs for all cyclists, they are having an amazing time and gaining lots of experience for the years to come. 

 “The social aspect of cycling is fantastic, as you can chat and get to know each other a lot more when you ride side by side. Also getting the chance to travel for competition is an amazing opportunity,” said Isabelle Claxton, the cyclist from the cycling team. 

Although training starts at 6 am, the cyclist of the team, Naomi Dartnell said, “I am not a morning person at all, but on days I have training I know it’s going to be beneficial for me to get up earlier and see an improvement in my fitness and health!”  


Team Mantra
Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever

Team in one word: HUNGRY 




Highlight: Fight for Medals


TeamMONASH are playing in twelve gold medal matches and semi-final games today.

TeamMONASH was devastated to lose the overall trophy to Melbourne University at the 2013 Australian University Games. All 670 athletes are determined to win as many gold medals as possible and bring the trophy back home to Monash University. 

With the help of Taekwondo’s convincing win, TeamMONASH already have one gold medal under their belt, and are feeling confident to contend for victory on today’s final. 

The sports competing for the gold medal are: Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Netball, Softball, Tennis, and Tenpin Bowling. 

Two of the most exciting competitions would be the Badminton and Football final, which TeamMONASH will face off against the University of Sydney, who claimed gold in Football and silver in Badminton last year; and the University of Melbourne, who dominated the games winning gold in Badminton, Football, and Baseball.
