Follow Lincoln University at the World 3x3 Games

The Lincoln University travelling party has safely touched down in Xiamen, China, and begun preparations for the start of the FISU 3x3 World University League Finals – which tip off Thursday 14 September.

Hype has certainly begun to increase for the two teams (both the men’s and women’s teams from LU won the NZ Championship in April this year) with TVNZ reporter Matt Hall-Smith heading out to campus to catch up with the teams:

The LU women’s team is made up of Connie Poletti, Caitlin Grice, Bianca Malifa and Sophie Schrader, while the men’s team consists of James Cawthorn, Ben Bowie, Ben Wlliams and Josiah Williams. Joshua Thompson and Hoani Smith are handling the coaching, training and managerial roles for the two teams.
