The SPrint that was!

“Pain is only temporary but victory is forever.”

The aim of SPrint across the years has been to encourage and bring together sports persons 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 participation to be growing across the years. Friendships forged on the playground help in networking across corporate boardrooms. SPrint facilitates this in a huge manner.

SPrint 2014 saw players rise above pain and overcome adversities to become champions!
In its 7th year, SPrint witnessed a footfall of more than 1000 students from B Schools across India including MDI Gurgaon, IIM Indore, JBIMS, SJSOM and many more. Spread across 4 days, with 106 matched played which included sporting events like cricket, football, volleyball, swimming and athletics, the event held every athlete’s breath for 95 hours. Our 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 4 days, starting from 23rd January 2015, SPJIMR saw participants from across the Top B schools in the country, playing hard to win, gearing up to competition and above all, reliving the spirit of Sportsmanship. The campus located in Mumbai was buzzling with as much energy as the rest of city. The camaraderie off the field was as exemplary as the competition on it. Winners were awarded Spykar coupons worth Rs. 40,000, Bombay high Coupons worth Rs.120,000 apart from gold, silver and bronze medals. 

SPrint 2015 is pegged to be 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 surpassing 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 our dedication and enthusiasm towards sports and participants. It is time to UNLEASH THE WARRIOR WITHIN! Are you ready? 

See you at SPrint 2015!
