The female swimmers team of Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca (UBB) returned home with medals from the National University Swimming Championship, which took place during 29th-30th April 2022, in Bacău.
All four UBB female student swimmers, coordinated by Assoc. Prof. Nicolae Pop, were awarded the golden, silver and bronze medals. Luoana Brădean, 3rd year student at the Faculty of Physics, won the silver medal in the 100-metre-backstroke race; Paula Jaravete, 2nd year student at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports won the gold medal in the 100-metre crawl race; Melisa Maxim, 3rd year student at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports, won the bronze medal in the 100-metre bras race, while Sandra Micăuș-Vivoschi, 3rd year student at the Faculty of Business, won silver in the 100-meetre butterfly race.
Together with individual results, the UBB team won the gold in both mixed relays (4x50m) and in the freestyle race (4x50m).
This is a performance that we are extremely proud of and I congratulate the girls. We started this trip with 4 girls and they all came back home with medals. It’s very important that, aside from the academic dimension, we truly focus on the sports, especially since we can now compete at a high and very high level, said the coordinator of the UBB swimming team, Assoc. Prof. Nicolae Pop, vice-dean of the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports.
