The sound of cheering was reverberating through the University of Ruhuna gymnasium, boosting the players to bring the title home. Some decisive matches were held yesterday kindling winning hopes within the hearts of many teams. Men’s quarter final, semi final matches and women’s semi final matches were held yesterday creating a ripple in the IUC 2015 overall points table.

The ball was flying over the net; energetic youngsters from both sides were trying to keep the ball from touching the ground. The “Bang” of the ball had become the beat of their hearts. Beads of sweat on their faces were dazzling, showing the power and courage of these young players. They were focused on passing the ball forgetting all about their fatigue.

Amidst the swelling roars of victory and deep fiery war cries, the battle of the universities rages on. With their vibrant flags raised high, the troops are battling relentlessly for the ultimate victory, to emerge as the champions of Inter University Games 2015.

‘The Black Eagles’, the Korean Air Force jets roared in ‘Flying V’-formation cutting through the air above the World Cup Stadium. As the procession of athletes from 137 nations entered the stadium, it was greeted with a deafening cheer by the enthralled spectators who were packed to the rafters of the arena.
