Lee-Ann de Wet set the bar high at the University Sports South Africa (Ussa) badminton tournament hosted at the University of Pretoria recently.

De Wet, a third-year BCom student at IIE Varsity College in Rondebosch, won two gold ­medals.

She won gold in both the women’s doubles and the mixed doubles competition as well as a bronze in the women’s singles while also being graded as the second best player ­nationally.

“My Ussa experience is always great. It’s a good tournament for development. My highlights were winning two gold medals and playing in the finals. Being voted Miss Ussa Badminton 2017, which is about sportsmanship on and off the court, was great. I look forward to representing Varsity College at Ussa 2018,” says De Wet.

She was also chosen to participate in the 29th Summer Universiade taking place next month.
