The world’s most elite equestrials, such as the U and World Champion, are a rarity in many parts of the world.
But the UBC and University of Western Ontario students’ club, which is one of Canada’s most prestigious, has been a long-time fixture at the top of the list of world equestria.
UBC student-athlete, Chris Bunn, was selected as a World Champion in 2013, the first time a female student has won.
“It’s a really, really big deal to me that I’m here.
I really appreciate the support,” said Bunn.
“I really appreciate that they’ve been kind enough to help me out.”
Bunn is one in a long line of UBC students who have earned accolades as World Champions, including Olympic gold medalist and former UBC champion Caitlin Kelly, who won gold in the men’s 4x400m relay in London in 2016.
“The way we train, we have a lot of respect for our fellow students, and we have been very supportive of their careers,” said Kelly.
Bunning is another student who has made history by winning the World Cup in the women’s 4×400m final in 2015. “
And they’re really focused on getting good grades, doing the right things, and just being successful and being part of this team.”

“We had a really big team in the pool and I think that was a really good team, so it’s great to have that team,” said the 14-year-old.
“Being in a pool like this with these great students, I think you can be a little bit ahead.”
But despite the UB students’ success, Bunn’s focus remains on winning the national championships in the fall.
The UBC men’s team is just one of the few sports in Canada that offers female athletes the opportunity to compete.
“For me, it’s really about the team,” he said.
“You can’t really be a student and a champion on your own.
You have to compete and win, and you have to do that on the track, too.”
That is something that Bunn said he has been doing.
“There’s definitely a lot more females in athletics,” he added.
“At UBC, you can’t just be a guy and just run around and compete, you have have to be in a team.”
