The Utah Rugby Academy has become the first US rugby team to be invited to the United World Games in Klagenfurt Austria in June of 2016. Mgr. Franziskus Bertl came out to Utah to formally extend the invitation to the Academy and to answer any questions the players and parents may have about the tournament. Set on the Austrian-Italian border, the UWG saw 7000 athletes competing in 10 different sports making it larger than the Jr. Olympics. The Academy can expect to see national and academy teams from England, France, South Africa, New Zealand, Italy, and hosts of other European nations. This is a phenomenal opportunity for these players to pursue a gold medal at these games!
