While most people spent their winter vacation acclimatize, three UADS members traveled to Malaysia to represent the University of Alberta at the World University Debating Championships.
The team of Steph Wanke and Alex Ragan, as well as judge Raj Bhui, participated in the largest World Championships to date, and did very well.
Steph and Alex advanced to the Octo-finals, meaning that they finished in the top 30 teams among the 312 participating. This is only the second time that the UADS has had a team advance to the knock out rounds.
Congratulations to our Worlds’ contingent, and hopefully we can continue the trend next year in Dublin.
