On your mark, Get Set, Go! SPrint is SPJIMR’s sports extravaganza that provides a platform to promote sportsmanship among the best talents from top Indian B-Schools. On the 20th January, 39 students from TAPMI started out on the on their journey to Mumbai, with a thought in mind, to win as many medals as possible and to show that TAPMI considers sport a very essential ingredient to the holistic development of its students. It was a long cold journey and all our players were waiting to smash their opponents! The event saw participation from 17 B-Schools, that included among others, IIM-I, IIM-K, MDI, FMS, IIFT, TISS, JBIMS, NMIMS, NITIE, IMT-G, TAPMI, KJSOM. In the event, as many as 840 students competed in 15 different sports, and TAPMI stood 4th overall in the very first year of participation.
The students of TAPMI were present everywhere. Be it basketball, football, volleyball, cricket, throwball or table tennis, badminton, squash, carrom and athletics. We were one of the largest contingents taking part in the event. We were the proud winners of 26 medals, 4 Gold, 15 Silver and 7 Bronze. This was the first time that TAPMI took an initiative to try out at sports and the results are there for everyone to see! Kudos to SportsCom for pursuing this and making it happen. There was victory, but we also tasted failure. It was an experience that will be remembered. Ask the students how it was and they say, “Wait for the next year, we will come back with more”.
