UQ Blues Awards Dinner 2016
Fri. 4 November 2016, 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm
UQ Sport invites you to join us as we recognise the outstanding sporting achievements of our past and present student-athletes at the annual UQ Blues Awards Dinner.
The Blues Awards have a long tradition at UQ Sport and The University of Queensland. Over the years, Blues have been awarded to sportsmen and sportswomen in recognition of their outstanding sporting achievements and for enhancing the reputation of university sport. To be awarded a University Blue is held in high esteem and is one of the highest accolades a university athlete can receive.
Hosted by former ABC Grandstand commentator Gerry Collins, this year’s event features a special Q&A with Melbourne 1956 and Rome 1960 Olympic gold medallist David Theile AO – the only Australian to win an Olympic Backstroke gold medal – and Rio 2016 20km Walk bronze medallist, Dane Bird-Smith.
Tickets include dinner and drinks.
