University sports

Some 4,000 RUB students and employees take advantage of the university sports programme every semester. They have the choice between some 70 disciplines. Those include traditional disciplines such as artistic gymnastics, football, running and judo, as well as the more exotic options underwater rugby, juggling, parcouring and zumba. Everybody is welcome: in order to keep fit, to do something for one’s health and to meet new people. The RUB’s contribution exceeds mere amateur sports; in fact, many university sports alumni have gone on to become celebrated athletes: RUB students have won numerous medals in the Olympic Games as well as in world and European championships, especially in rowing competitions.
