‘Welcome. Welcome. Happy 6th NPSC. And may the odds be ever in your favor..’
That line came to my mind when I, together with the other 89 IIUM representatives arrived at UKM Bangi on 19th May. UKM environment is classic. I just love that. We went there for 2 days, fighting hard while bearing this year’s tagline “Burning Passion, Pursuing Championship” in our hearts.
My fellow friends tried extremely hard to win all the games, competing with the other 9 universities. I was totally amazed by their zest. Some played under blazing sun-ray for the whole daylight while me and other supporters (Nasrin 2nd year especially) tried our best to cheer them up (Sore throat!).
Nighttime was the time for the track games. It turned out that one of our supporters had to replace an athlete for 4x400m track game >0<. UM sent one Chinese female athlete, who was as fast as cheetah, for the track games. She scored 4 GOLD! My goodness. Steroid? Impossible. We brought the champion trophy with strong conviction that we were going to bring it back to IIUM. Well, it was no longer a mere dream. We won again this year, but it was not an easy fight though. Alhamdulillah. This is the overall standing of our 6th NPSC UKM 2013:
That is all, a story from me. 7th NPSC will be held at IIUM (It will be awesome!). Are we going to maintain the championship? May the odds be ever in our favour..
