The World University Games are the second largest international athletic event, larger even than the Commonwealth Games, and features more than 20,000 athletes from 170 countries.

In July of 2016, Tristan won the Bronze medal in the 400m at the Oceania Melanesian Championships held in Fiji. He then went on to win the Australian University Games 400m title in Perth last October representing the University of Melbourne.
