Two Massey student-athletes have won bronze medals at the World University Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany.
The three-member team, which includes Massey’s Chloe Akers and Helen Bruce, excelled in dressage and jumping to take bronze behind hosts and winners Germany, with France taking silver. Auckland University’s Rachael Bentall was also a team member.
The New Zealand team competed against 26 other countries at the event.
Ms Bruce has just graduated from Massey with a Bachelor of Applied Science majoring in agriculture, and is a regular competitor in both eventing and jumping.
Ms Akers, a Bachelor of Education student who won the inaugural New Zealand Universities Championship, is an award-winning jumper but has previously competed in dressage.
