Pom Cheer placed 1st at the Future Cheer Circus Spectacular in the Open Pom category. They were in a category of 7; consisting of 1 non-university team and 5 other university teams including Sheffield Hallam, who they beat by over 28 points.
Our Trampolining team had a very successful weekend at the Sheffield Trampolining Open. They took home 3 Golds,3 Silvers and a bronze in the individual, then gold and bronze team medals. They also won the league form shield and the competition overall, taking home the steel cup!
UoS Taekwondo club enjoyed great success at their Nationals in Worcester last weekend by bringing home 4 medals (2 silver and 2 bronze). The British Student Taekwondo Federation Nationals event had more than 450 competitors (a new record) from more than 50 universities across the country. Our club doubled its number of competitors attending the tournament from last year.
