UNMC Rugby Club: Gold for the Girls

UNMC Rugby Club: Gold for the Girls

Last Saturday, on the 18th of March, the UNMC Rugby Club collaborated with Fit Touch Malaysia to organize a touch rugby tournament. The tournament was held on campus and consisted of 2 categories which were the IPT Women and the Open Men category. Our girls’ touch rugby team won all 4 group matches and proceeded to the semi final and final matches. In the finals, we played against Politeknik Shah Alam and won the finals after sudden death was triggered. The girls’ team became IPT Champions for the second time in a row after beating Politeknik Shah Alam in the finals. It was the second time the girls participated in a touch tournament and it was their second gold medal. We are proud of their achievement and hope there is more to come from the UNMC Rugby Club!

UNMC Cycling Club: IJN Ride 4 Your Heart 2016

UNMC Cycling Club: IJN Ride 4 Your Heart 2016

On Sunday, 11th December 2016, the UNMC Cycling Club members took part in IJN’s 115km cycling event: Ride 4 Your Heart. This year, UNMC was proudly chosen as the annual cycling event’s venue sponsor. The objective of the event is to bring awareness to the importance of the most precious organ in our body – “The Heart”. As IJN puts it, “the heart is a giver of life – a healthy heart leads to a happy and fulfilling life. That is why it is imperative that we keep it strong with regular exercises and cardio activities – the most impactful is cycling.”   The 4 riders that participated from the Cycling Club are Malik Hisyam Zaihan, Keanu Nurherbyanto, Danial Azmi & Devraj Sathivelu (who’s also an alumni, graduated last year but joined to train with members on weekends and is a founding member of Cycling Club).   The flagoff was at 7am from the Trent building in an extremely large group of over 1000 cyclists.  . According to experienced cyclists, this happens to be one of the tougher cycling routes out there due to the treacherous hills on the main track.  . Malik (President of Cycling Club) gives an overview of the cycling adventure below:  . Flagging off and cycling out of Jalan Broga felt great because the traffic police completely closed off the roads for us and it felt magical to be cycling amongst a huge group of cyclists. The first challenge came at Peres which is after the Semenyih Dam (it’s the first long incline in the map), a long climb which takes approximately 45 minutes to clear. .  ...

On the 3rd of December, our UNMC Rugby Club’s gentlemen participated in the Asia Pacific Rugby Tournament at Padang Alamanda, Putrajaya. During the group stages, the team managed to win 3 games and only lost 1 game. “We topped our group because we had more points compared to the other teams, and thus we proceeded to the semifinals.” Unfortunately, the team lost with a score of 12-7 to Malaysia Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) in the semifinal match. It was a really tough game as both teams put up a good fight. “At the start of the game, we were leading by 7-0, but our opponent managed to recover towards the end of the match.” After the semifinals, there was a huge rebound in the Third Placing match, and our rugby team won by a whopping 22-0 against Darul Ehsan Cougars.
