Blues Recipients

Blues Awards have a long tradition at UQ Sport and The University of Queensland. Over the years, Blues have been awarded to sportsmen and sportswomen in recognition of their outstanding sporting achievements and for enhancing the reputation of university sport. To be awarded a University Blue is held in high esteem and is one of the highest accolades a University athlete can receive.

Blues have been awarded at The University of Queensland since 1912, when one each was awarded in the sports of rugby, tennis and athletics. Blues are awarded for outstanding performances in club fixtures, representative games, and inter-university competitions. In recent years UQ Sport through its Blues Advisory Committee, has developed a selection method and criteria to ensure that Blues and Half-Blues at the university are of the highest standard. Each year these awards are presented at the UQ Sport Blues Awards Dinner.

More information about the UQ Sport Blues Awards can be found on UQ Sport’s website.
