The SPRINT that was
SPrint is SPJIMR's annual Sports Fest
“Pain is only temporary but victory is forever.”
The aim of SPRINT over the years has been to encourage and bring together sportspersons across all B-schools in the country and help them enjoy their passion, which they have probably forgone due to pressures of “the B-school life”. SPRINT has been known to display hospitality and encourage fair play, and it is for this reason that we have witnessed growing participation levels across the years.
Friendships forged on the playground help in networking across corporate boardrooms, and SPRINT faciltates this in a huge manner. SPRINT 2014 saw players rise above pain and overcome adversities to become champions!
SPRINT 2014 a roaring success
In its seventh year, SPRINT witnesed a footfall of more than 1,000 students from B-schools across India including MDI Gurgaon, IIM Indore, JBIMS, SJSOM and many more. Spread across four days with 106 matches played, which included sporting events like cricket, football, volleyball, swimming and athletics, the event held every athlete’s breath for 95 hours. The partners included corporate names like (but not limited to) BHEL, Tata Motors, Bombay High and Spykar.
True to its spirit, the theme for SPRINT 2014 was “Inspire the sportsman within”. SPJIMR bagged the overall championship with a total of 37 medals followed by NMIMS with 13 medals and SCMHRD with 20 medals.
For four days, starting from 23rd January 2014, SPJIMR saw participants from the top B-schools in the country – playing hard to win, gearing up to the competition and above all, reliving the spirit of sportsmanship. The campus located in Mumbai was buzzing with as much energy as the rest of the city.
The camaraderie off the field was as exemplary as the competition on it. The winners were awarded Spykar coupons worth Rs. 40,000 and Bombay High coupons worth Rs.120,000 apart from gold, silver and bronze medals.
2015 event larger than ever before
SPRINT 2015 is pegged to be even larger. This year’s Greek theme personifies the aggression inside each sportsperson; it signifies the enthusiasm to participate and the passion to win. Above all, it signifies the spirit of sports. With just 20 days left, registrations are filling fast and surpassing all previous years’!
The campus is abuzz with activity. Students are excited and the SPRINT committee is working round the clock to ensure that participants and spectators experience an amazing time. What remains constant is the dedication and enthusiasm towards sports and the participants.
It is time to UNLEASH THE WARRIOR WITHIN! Are you ready?
See you at SPRINT 2015!
