A Success Story : Inter-IIT Aquatics 2016

Recently, IIT Delhi Aquatics team came home to a hero’s reception. And deservedly so. After all, they have made us proud in this year’s Inter-IIT Aquatics Meet held in IIT Kanpur.

Every team works diligently in a quest to improve until it reaches the pinnacle of sporting excellence and this year’s result shows that IIT Delhi’s aquatics team is marching (or should I say swimming) on the right path. Last year, IIT Delhi Boys’ swimming team secured 5th position and this year they secured the 3rd spot.

Is Inter IIT all about Sports?

Although, the name clearly mentions “Inter IIT Sports Meet”, but is it actually just the game that matters. Well no. Inter IIT is way more than just a tournament. While at the court, your opponent might be your enemy. You sweat it all out, in order to bring pride to your institute and yourself. That is what a game is essentially for; To bring out the best in you, as a person and as a performer. But all of this is a mere subset of what the Inter IIT stands for. This ten day festival celebrates the coming together of some of the sharpest Indian minds, it celebrates friendship and it celebrates rivalry. When people from different places get to meet each other, have meals together, get to laugh at something embarrassing, that is when true friendship is built.

A word with Rahul Jhajharia, the Gold Miner.

For all those who think aisa sirf movies me hota hai, here is Rahul Jhajharia,JJ as he is commonly known, for you. 4 Gold medals (800m, 1500m, 5000m, 4*400m relay) in his maiden Inter IIT appearance. But there is more to his story than just these medals. It’s a story of passion towards the sport, dedication towards practice and devotion to one’s Guru.

Atul scored a hat-trick, and Shubh scored a single goal.

Inter Hostel Badminton

Inter-IIT is over but sports isn't. Just one month ago, the Badminton team won the Bronze medal in the Inter-IIT at IIT Bombay. These players, who put their everything to win a medal for IIT Delhi a month ago, were competing against each other for their hostels today.
