I guess you were aware of what happened yesterday. We had a pretty big victory in USM, Penang ! Alhamdulillah. A total of nine universities took part in this National Pharmacy Sports Carnival, which took place 29-30 January 2011 with the theme creating a healthy, dynamic, future pharmacists.
I think it was a tremendous initiative when USM brought the traditional games along with the modern games. Thus, the player capabilities in playing both games can be tested. It was a relief when the total points for traditional games were excluded because our players were-not-so-good in playing traditional hehe. Well, here’s the result.
Gold – Netball, takraw, volley ball male, ping pong male double
Silver – Futsal male , Futsal female, volleyball female, badminton male ( single & double ), ping pong single
As u can see above, the recognition of the overall champion is depends on the gold medal count instead of total medal count. That’s why AIMST is ranked higher than UiTM. Disappointingly, if the organizer of previous NPSC was using the same system, beyond doubt IIUM Pharmacy was the champion because we did win many gold medals last year. Nevermind, Let bygones be bygones. We are already the champion. Yeah ! Hopefully the ranking system will be standardized later on to avoid any conflict. The Dean School of Pharmacy, USM officiated to closing ceremony and presented the trophy to our representative, Hafiz and IIUM was announced as the next host for National Pharmacy Sports Carnival. Hopefully we can seize the trophy in consecutive seasons, InsyaAllah.
