Australia at the Winter World University Games

Introduction

Australia's history in the FISU Winter World University Games (WUG) dates back to 1985 and has seen Australian student-athletes compete in 11 of the last 25 events with unbroken involvement since 1991. The UniRoos have entered teams for events such as figure skating, speed skating, snowboard cross, ski cross, cross country skiing and freestyle skiing. 

Australia's best ever result at a FISU Winter WUG is two silver medals by Amber Arazny (Snowboard: Ladies' Slopestyle) and Joss McAlpine (Snowboard: Men's Big Air) in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 2017.
