“Go go go J’pura go!!” , “Eya ape, eyath ape!!”; the chants still echo in my ears!
The 22nd of July, 2018, was a day to remember in our Badminton history, as both the Mens and Womens teams played for the Inter University Games- Badminton finals.
The ladies who played against University of Sabaragamuwa, were able to retain the Trophy for the third consecutive time!! The mens games were all the more tense; they, who played against the University of Moratuwa, were not ready to back off, not even the last minute. After a very close game of endless fist clenching and nail biting, they emerged as runners up.
University of Sri Jayewardenepura was the only university that made it to the finals in both mens and womens categories in Badminton. And what more, they are the Overall Champions of Badminton at IUG 2018! They made us proud yet again.
Congratulations brothers and sisters, you guys never fail to surprise us!! Now bring the trophies home for safe keeping!
