Asian University Welcomes Mahidol University For Sports Day

Asian University played host to Mahidol University International College on Saturday 3 November in their annual competition. This year was the turn of Asian University, on Highway 331, to invite Mahidol University from Bangkok. The day started with a traditional welcome to the visitors at Asian Unversity’s modern sports facility. A full day of sports had been arranged and both universities won several games and matches.

There were a number of sports on the agenda with the first being the men’s basketball match, which Mahidol won with a comfortable lead. Many other sports followed, such as the men’s and women’s table tennis and single and mixed badminton matches as well as the first ever women’s volleyball match. Both universities took an equal share of wins in all of these matches.

One of the highlights of the day was the men’s volleyball game with each team taking a game apiece with the two point advantage changing sides frequently; this ensured a very entertaining and nail biting time .

The third and deciding game was a very tight affair with Asian University taking the final score of the game to 15 – 12 resulting in a narrow but well deserved win.

The final match of the day was the football game which was played outside in the true tradition of the game under a beautiful setting sun in the natural surroundings of the campus.

Mahidol was leading 2-0 at half time when Asian U fought back to bring the score at the ninetieth minute to a very respectable draw of 3-3.

The day finished up with a BBQ and a show by Asian U’s dance and music club. It was a truly wonderful day of sports and another step in cementing a strong inter-university sports and academic relationship, which has now been growing for five years.
