University of Sheffield International Student Teams (USIST) competition ran on the weekend of the 23rd March 2019.
With 21 teams (each comprising of 2 women and 4 men) competing this year we had plenty of supporters cheering on their teams, including team chants, songs and event drums! All contributed to the great atmosphere.
As ever, it's great to see our regulars returning, including our old friends from Münster who returned for their 20th year, they've only missed a few since the event was established in 1998.

Boat race results
A student competition wouldn't be right without a pub boat race! We had a number of the clubs enter a team or two into the boat race, but the ultimate 'champions of beer' were Aachen University! Not a surprise to anyone who has seen their logo...
To all the officials who volunteer their time to support the event, the staff at the sports centre, the Doctors Orders pub for hosting the post competition boat race, but most of all, thank you to the players and coaches who travelled from near and far to make USIST the great event it is. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2020! (please don't ruin this for us brexit...)
Masterclass with Yoko Tanabe and Joyce Heron
On March 15th, six members from Sheffield University Judo Club attended a judo masterclass with Dr Yoko Tanabe 7th dan and Joyce Heron 7th dan at the English Institute of Sport.
The masterclass covered Tai Otoshi and transitions into pins and submission from that throw. Everyone had a great time and we hope to attend similar events in the future.
