The University of Alicante's beach volleyball team, made up of students of Physical Activities and Sports Sciences, Fran Marco and Cristian García, won the gold medal in the 2012 Spain University Championship on Saturday, 31st March.
In a championship marked by the high level of participants, the UA team has won the gold medal. This is a trophy that enlarges the sports educational and performance philosophy that the UA Secretariat for Sports and the Faculty of Education at the UA, parties involved in the Tech Programme, have launched for 3 years now.
UA players are preparing their participation in the Continental Cup, a tournament that gives access to the Olympic places. According to the deputy programme manager, Juan José Chinchilla Mira, "this result strengthens us as a new model different from other universities".
