“Every Champion Was Once A Contender That Refused To Give Up.” – Rocky Balboa
They came, they played, they tried and they conquered. This was the story of every player who participated in the spectacle called ‘Nirma Champions League ‘16’ lasting over the 21 days. Last week showcased some of the enthralling moments across almost all the sports. This includes a nail-baiting finish between Barbarians and Stallions for a football eliminator. This match went into a tense penalty shootout where former held their nerves and came out victorious to give themselves a chance to progress through to the next round. Another piece of brilliance was displayed in a Table Tennis tussle played between Chinmay (Dronas) and Govinda (Daivats), which was won by Govinda with a final score of 21-18. In between all these, Airavats pulled up probably the biggest upset of NCL by defeating mighty Stallions with the score line of 2-1. In Throw ball, Stallions managed to pull off a heist to beat Shehzaade with the score line of 21-19 in a Bronze medal match-out. In the end, it was Beacons who performed excellently across all the disciplines and were crowned champions of NCL ’16.
Also Kudos to whole Sportzzz Comm – Institute of management, Nirma University team for putting up a great platform for the students to showcase their sporting skills and organizing a great event to start off 2016.
