Canterbury Varsity 2017: The ones to watch

Edie Kelly has contacted the captains from every sports team to find out who we should watch out for in Varsity this year.

With less than a week to go, I have once again contacted all of the captains to find out who we should be looking out for as we face the University of Kent in the University’s biggest calendar event of the year – Varsity. If you’ve never been or don’t really know much about CCSU Sport, I hope this will give you a little more confidence to go and watch what really is an outstanding spectacle of all the sports involved.

A big thank you to all the teams that participated, and to the organisers for making this event happen as well as all the teams photographers. Good luck to all the teams involved and lets hope for our first ever win as a University. Here we go…

Thursday 9th February

9:30am – Swimming @ Kingsmead Leisure Centre – Josh Ryan & Charlotte Rouncivell
Josh was new to the team in September and had previously taken a short break from swimming. Throughout the year however, Josh has been consistently working hard and has cemented his place in the Christ Church swim team. His work ethic at training has really helped to push other members of the club to work harder to earn their place in the team. Expect maximum effort and good performances throughout the competition especially in the 50m freestyle.


Charlotte is in her second year of swimming for Uni and was elected women’s captain for the year. Having previously swam at a very high standard she has been getting back to her best. At BUCS this year Charlotte not only managed to finish 54th out of 226 competitors, but also managed to beat her Kent opposite by almost 3 seconds. This is her second Varsity and in her current form you should expect a fast 50m Backstroke.
