Lighting Up World Uni Games

3 July 2019

Jonathan Rutter
F-Teamer Jonathan Rutter is ready to dive in to World Uni Games.

World Uni Games is ready to kick off and our Funky Trunks F-Teamers are roaring to get racing! The best university athletes from around the world are coming together to battle it out at this massive multi-sport event held this year in Naples, Italy. Occurring every second year, it's a great chance for athletes to race in a competitive international environment that's hard to find outside of the Olympics. Taking place from the 3rd to the 14th of July it will be an event to remember for our 4 Funky Trunks athletes.

Representing Australia is Olympian Jacob Hansford, who'll be racing in the 200m and 400m Freestyle. This year Australian swimmers were put under the pump to decide which event they would trial for: World Uni Games or World Champs. It was a difficult decision for many of Australia's top swimmers, with the chance for top international racing experience on the line. For Jacob, World Uni Games is a great way to prepare for the Olympic Trials, a strategy he used successfully back in 2015. Plus the athletes' village being aboard two luxury cruise ships doesn't hurt!

F-Teamer Jonathan Rutter has been racking up his frequent flyer miles of late with his busy international racing schedule. Born and raised in the US but with New Zealand heritage, he competes for New Zealand internationally at events such as the 2018 FINA World Cup. Jonathan made the trip over the Atlantic for New Zealand World Champs Trials in Auckland last month, but narrowly missed out on a spot on the team. Undeterred, Jonathan is now in Naples where he'll be racing in four Freestyle and Breaststroke events.
