BUCS Nationals 2019

This year we took Anglia Ruskin students to BUCS Nationals to compete in athletics, judo, fencing, karate and swimming. 

All of our athletes were supported by the Team ARU staff.

We had students from six different nationalities competing; eight of our athletes made their debut in the competition.

Mascot, Ruskin the Rhino, also tried his best in the highly competitive mascot race!
