The reace for the fastest time on the segment "USI Mile" is over

From October 9 to November 19, the USI was looking for the fastest runners over the 1.6 km distance.... and we found them.
On the specially created and signposted USI Mile, the runners ran diligently and achieved top times on the asphalt.

Pia Lizlbauer took the lead in the women's race, 6 and 15 seconds ahead of Linda Kostolanska and Timna Gschwandl respectively.

In the men's race, there was an exciting back-and-forth for the podium places towards the end. A "newcomer" to the MUL, Gustav Greiner, was able to take first place unchallenged. With his background in orienteering, he completed the mile in a strong 5 minutes and 12 seconds. He was followed by Konrad Geyr in 2nd place with 05:21 and Lukas Bauer in 3rd place with 05:25.

We congratulate all participants and will be in touch with the fastest soon.

On the weekend of October 21 and 22, the Unisport Austria Championships in Basketball 3x3 took place in Vienna for the first time. There, our team from the University of Leoben (Suleiman Khusnutdinov, Damian Pasiecznik, Samuel Ringhofer and Karlo Blažević) fought against teams from the University of Vienna, Innsbruck, Salzburg and Linz for the coveted title of "Austrian University Champion"!

In their role as underdogs, the Montanuni team surprised many and fought their way to the final in a bunch of extremely close and physically demanding games.
In the final, however, they were defeated by the men of the University of Innsbruck (USI Avalanches).

The second place and the silver medal shines even more when you consider that many of the teams playing there are active in their own UNI sports league (Austrian College Sports League).

The last place on the podium was secured by the Tigers of the Vienna University of Economics and Business, who defeated the second team of the University of Innsbruck in the small final.


We congratulate our men around our team captain Suli and thank the colleagues of the USI Vienna and Unisport Austria for the great organization!
