Vikes end strong at Universiade games

Gordon Head product and University of Victoria Vikes soccer player Shayla Behrens helped Team Canada’s women’s soccer team to fifth overall at the 2011 World Universiade (University) summer games in Schenzen, China.

The team ended the games with a 1-0 defeat of Russia. It matches Canada’s fifth-place finishes in 2005 (Turkey) and 1993 (Buffalo).

Vikes highlights from the Universiade include swimmer Hilary Caldwell’s (London, Ont.) winning a silver medal in the women’s 200-metre backstroke.

Ten UVic athletes attended the Universiade games. The next Universiade summer games are in 2013 in Kazan, Russia.
