Final verse........
Our owl, well known, makes one wonder
Why should anyone steal our thunder.
We wish him well to find a mate
A dynasty perhaps he could create.

ANU Sport announce mascot


ANU Sport is pleased to announce that the Owl has been officially adopted as the ANU Sport mascot.
It was a popular choice among the students following a census in 2012 and again in 2015. ANU Sport council agreed the Owl would provide the greatest value as the ANU Sport mascot.
The Owl is symbolic of the ANU communities’ wisdom, whilst also having a strong association with Parliament in Canberra. It is unique to the Australian sporting landscape, noting that is not presently used by any other University or high profile sporting teams. 
ANU Sport have recently signed with a new merchandising provider, Kukri Sports. Together Kukri and ANU Sport have designed the Owl and its integration into the merchandise.  It has been modelled off the Powerful Owl which resides in Haig Park in Turner – less than a kilometre from campus. Photos were provided to Kukri of the iconic bird with a directive to highlight the fierce features of the Owl. The final design can be seen below.
146 ANU students will be the first group to identify themselves as the Owls next week at the Australian University Games on the Gold Coast. These students will participate against Australia’s best university athletes across 17 disciplines. An additional 27 students will be representing the ANU at Australian Rowing Championships in Adelaide.
ANU Sport wish all ANU students the best of luck in their respective competitions next week and hope they enjoy all the experiences that University Games has to offer. We are excited by the launch of the Owl and are looking forward to its evolution over the coming years.
