NOVA team wins CNU Surfing


NOVA's surfing team regained the trophy of first place in the collective standings at the CNU de Surf.

In the singles, João Kopke won the first place, in the men's match, and Maria Brandão reached the silver medal in the women's.

The event took place on 14th April, integrated in the Spring Surf Fest. NOVA was once again present at this university competition on the Costa de Caparica with students Afonso Batista, Beatriz Burgos, Bernardo Rodrigues, Gonçalo Santos, Inês Martins, João Kopke, João Ribeiro, Luis Ruiz Lucas, Mariana Brandão, Miguel Pereira and Tomás Portas.

As usual, before the CNU, a photo session of free surf took place what always helps to see the conditions of the place of proof and to make the heating, always wearing equipment of NOVA! A great opportunity for socializing among our student-athletes!

A big thank you to the whole team and one in particular to Inês Benedito Martins, who is already working at the Faro Hospital and came to represent our University for the last time. We remember that this athlete represented six times our University, only failing a year due to injury, getting an enviable track record in university sports. A bronze medal, a silver medal and two times national university surf champion.
