This Saturday was an exciting day in Trincomalee. Eastern skyline was gleaming with soft beams of sun. Another event of Inter University Games 2018, the Road Run was about to kick off at 6.15 in the morning. Almost all the brave and hardy boys who had gathered at the starting line, have had put themselves through long training periods to build up the strength, physical and mental fitness to run and own the trophy of the day.

My boys were dreamers and they didn’t want to just win it, they wanted to break the Boat Race record as well. We went all out from the beginning and did just that till the end! I will always remember, that final Mora cheer that I gave as the winning captain and the celebratory dip in Beire Lake that followed!

The final match was quite intense where both the goalies seemed to be dominating the goal. None of the players could go past the Rajarata goalie to secure a goal. The final match came to an end with the goal stricken by a Rajarata player converting the final score to 1-0.

They have found the rhythm between their bodies and the water waves. Tik-Tok clock is their only enemy which has turned the rhythm into a competition. I have got a big chance to do an interview with the team of sharks, swimming team captain of University of Moratuwa (mens’), D.A.S.R.Jayathunge. Let’s see how their preparation to the big event, Inter University Games 2018 is.

“It was tough 8 months of hard work, dedication, commitment, sweat, blood and pain coming to a fruitful end. It was all about bringing the glory back to the team, and to bring the trophy where it belongs. Our only priority was winning the tournament and all 35 of us had everything else in our life on hold. At the end of the day, it was all worth it.”

Yasith Jayasinghe is an upcoming leader renowned for his victories at the table tennis championship. Even with a spirit to always win, an achievement is not an easy feat to be realized. Therefore Moraspirit is much excited to bring to you the flashback of the life story that narrates the dedication behind the success of men’s table tennis in the university games, through the eyes of Yasith.
