Recognition

On 13 June RSU had invited over 50 RSU student-athletes and their coaches to a symbolic end-of-season awards ceremony at RSU Senate Hall to honour the achievements of RSU student-athletes in individual and team sports, e.g. 28th Latvian Universiade, 34th International SELL Student Games, etc.  One of our students was also standing on the pedestal at the Lattelecom Rīga Marathon – Jaakko Nieminen, a medical student from Finland, who earned the silver medal in the 10 km race for the second year in a row. 

As emphasised by RSU rector Professor Aigars Pētersons, "We enthusiastically followed the performance our basketball team which played against the Ķekava team and won the silver medals! Our men’s futsal team won third place in the Latvian Futsal Premier League. Well done! We are proud of you! Mens sana in corpore sano
