First prize was awarded to Davide Zampiere from University of Padova for his project on ‘Fabrication and mechanical testing of auxetic foam for sport safety applications’.
Second prize was awarded to Brock Laschowski from University of Western Ontario for his project on ‘The effects of oar-shaft stiffness and length of rowing biomechanics’.
Congratulations to both Davide and Brock!
The judges were very impressed with the quality of all the projects we received this year; they were a great reflection of the high standard of sports engineering work undertaken by our members at the moment. Thank you to all applicants.
