24 November; Michelle Ho and Peter Walker


The University’s student-athletes were recognised for their 2016 sporting achievements at the Blues and Sport Awards, held in the Copland Theatre on Friday 18 November.

Blues awards were presented to 101 student-athletes based on their performances representing the University, while 47 student-athletes were awarded an International Representation Certificate in recognition of their selection on the international stage. 

Opening the proceedings, Director of Sport Mr Tim Lee praised the University’s student-athletes for their exceptional 2016 results at the Australian University Games and stand-alone Championships, victory over rival Monash University in the annual Varsity Challenge, and the Women’s eighth victory in-a-row at the Australian Boat Race in Sydney.

'It’s great to see the positive impact that sport is having for our student-athletes,' detailed Mr Lee, who also acknowledged the diligent behind-the-scenes work the University, sporting community, family and friends undertake to support student-athletes on their sporting journeys.

On hand to present the awards were the University’s Vice-Principal (Engagement) Adrian Collette and Melbourne University Sport Board Chairman Professor James Angus, while alumna and multiple Rowing Blue Dr Alice McNamara, delivered a stirring keynote speech about the opportunities the University has opened for her, her resilience in balancing her Rowing aspirations with her studies, and the importance of teamwork. 

McNamara presented the Outstanding Athlete of the Year award on the night to Doctor of Medicine student Josh Booth, for his Silver medal in the Rowing Men’s Four at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Josh's award was accepted on his behalf by his father David due to his attendance at the Victorian Olympic Council annual dinner.

Further awards were presented to recognise the outstanding performances by student-athletes, officials and teams representing the University of Melbourne in 2016:
