This is the 34th national competition and last week was an elimination round for the national colleges and universities’ games later on. There were 12 colleges and universities taking part, all located in the eastern part of Thailand.

The event was opened with a parade through the city which included not only the participants but also local dignitaries.

Luckily for all our students, Asian University was able to take part in this important sports event for the first time this year; it was a great opportunity to get to know about other universities and colleges in the eastern part of Thailand. We also met our old friend (and foe) – Burapa University – at this sports event

Basketball, soccer, beach volleyball and petanque were the main sports in this competition. All our players were excited and looking forward to these games. Not for winning the game, but getting more involved and making new friends from other universities.

During the games, the atmosphere was so excited and extremely lively. Players fulfill all their talents in the games, loving the sport; feeling sweat on their bodies. Other students who were not playing were also excited with the games, and the cheer leaders encouraged the cheering and shouting, which didn’t stop until the game was over.

Everybody seemed so lively and involved with each other, even though they may not know the other players very well. Many of the students took time out from the sports to visit some of the local historic sights.
