Elven army? Almost, it’s the UWaterloo Archery club!

UWaterloo archers channeled their inner Lord of The Rings spirit, hitting the target at this year’s Inter-university Archery Tournament. At the end of March, the club travelled to the University of Toronto for the fifth annual Ontario-wide competition. Shooting 60 arrows each was no sweat for the UWaterloo teammates, and much like Robin Hood, the team aimed true, winning first place overall with 3,058 points.

For Brandon Van Wyk, a competitive swimmer who is hard of hearing, this is what each swim meet is like. Despite this challenge, Brandon is determined to succeed, and on August 17 he will be representing Canada at the World Deaf Swimming Championships in San Antonio, Texas.

Becoming a Team Canada dragon boater

Success is a process; it takes time and effort to achieve great things. For five UWaterloo students who were just named to the Under 24 Canadian National Dragon Boat Squad, success was a process that took time, effort, dedication and teamwork. And paddling. Lots of paddling.
