The gloomy skies of Colombo brightened up with the women’s power at the InterUni elle matches which commenced yesterday. The games were held in the grounds of University of Colombo, with the universities put into 4 groups, competing to be champions of the group scoring the most homeruns.

Inter University Karate Championship came to an end at the Gymnasium of University of Sri Jayewardenapura on Sunday, 18th July, 2017. The medalists of 7 categories were decorated with medals. Day one was the Kata day and day two was for the Kumite. Kihon, Kata and kumite are the KS of Karate. Kihon means basics, Kata means form and Kumite means partner work. Karate is a highly complex art that takes many years to master and is a noble art of self-defense yet another beautiful sport.

J’pura players and their supporters ran to the batsmen and almost invaded the pitch as the Captain and the entire team jubilated on their victory. They were over the moon with celebration all around. They spelt together and finally roared “Japura” with a thundering voice to stun the Colombo University Ground with their famous “J’pura para”. That’s how the Final of Inter University Cricket Championship – 2017 concluded. Defending champions J’pura outplayed the unbeaten University of Jaffna as they won the match by 4 wickets.

It was a hectic day at University of Jaffna when all the weightlifters representing their Universities came to Jaffna on 11th of June, 2017 to meet their rivals in Weightlifting Championship of Inter University Games-2017. Eight newly established game records are not adequate to illustrate the excitement of the contending lifters. University of Peradeniya surpassed all other Universities to top the points table and lifter MGCSB Gunarathna was adjudged the best among the bests.

I was already in love. Fiercely, ecstatically and unconditionally. But seeing this man burst into the scene right out of thin air, on 3rd May 2008, at the Icahn Stadium in New York, with a New World Record (9.72 seconds) and following it up with a pair of physics-defying performances at the Bird’s Nest Stadium at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, I fell in love all over again. This was the saviour track and field was waiting for. A transcendental trailblazer who would exceed the wildest expectations of his fans.

Inter University Cricket Men’s Semifinals were held on Saturday 10th of June 2017 at University of Colombo and University Of Moratuwa grounds. The victorious teams that came through the quarter finals, University of Jaffna (JAF), University of Rajarata (RAJ), University of Colombo (COL) and University of Sri Jayawaradhanapura (SJP) were all ready for the battle and won the tickets to the finals.
