A Splendid Display of Determination and ‘Shaurya’ at IIM Ahmedabad
The contingent from IIM Udaipur has made the institute proud at the Annual sports fest of IIM Ahmedabad, Shaurya, which was held recently in the hallowed environs of the esteemed college. The team participated in six sports and the performance in these events helped the institute clinch an overall top ten finish amongst the umpteen numbers of teams. This was largely due to the brilliant performances which eventually led to third place finishes in football, Table Tennis and badminton.
Shaurya is an event eagerly awaited by the sports contingent of all B-schools because of the intense competition and also is an amazing breakaway from the hectic life of an MBA student. The same goes for the students who participated from IIMU, both PGP1 and PGP2, who despite the hectic B-school schedules trained regularly and wholeheartedly for every event. The football and table tennis teams defeated IIM Indore in their respective quarterfinals. The football match specifically was a nail-biting contest, with IIM Udaipur finally prevailing on penalties. Carrom too was an event the team excelled in with following players: Sameer, Prasad and Sanish clinching third place. The squash, snooker and badminton teams tried their utmost and the institute applauds their efforts. A special mention for one of the football players Ejas, who despite an injury played in two sports, badminton and football, exemplifying dedication and commitment to doing well at the tournament.
All in all, it was an amazing experience for the team and the students of IIM Udaipur are extremely proud of the contingent. The IIMU community is confident that more laurels are yet to come. The sportsmen of the institute aim to strive hard and improve on this years’ already amazing performance in Shaurya.
These matches were testament to the hard work and determination of the students and showed that sports is given its due importance at IIM Udaipur
