Victor ludorum (or Victrix ludorum) is Latin for "the winner of the games." It is usually a trophy presented to the most successful team, club, or competitor at a sports event. It is common at rowing regattas and was traditional at some British state and public school sports days. It is usually presented to the athlete/competitor who has won the most events or who has accumulated the most points through competing in many events.[1][2]

Female competitors usually compete for the Victrix ludorum.

The practice of awarding a trophy to the Victor (Victrix) Ludorum is still followed (2018) in schools and colleges established by descendents of British settlers in South Africa.
