After this year’s impressive performance at Champions Trophy 2016 in Hamburg, the bar has been set very high for the perceived “underdogs” from Munich. However, if anything, the TUM athletes exceeded all expectations, made a name for themselves and almost got a hold of the Overall-Sports Award.
On November 3rd, 60 ambitious TU Munich students have once again departed to Vallendar, fully equipped with high quality eGym gear, with the intention of spreading the “Mia San TUM” – Spirit at the Euromasters 2016. Once every year, this quiet, little town in the heart of Rheinland-Pfalz turns into Europe’s biggest college sporting event hosting over 2000 students and more than 25 universities from all over the continent.
Over the course of the weekend, all our participants have shown endeavour, commitment and passion, which led us to many victories and consequently rewarded our team with several well-deserved trophies. We are now proud to say, that we have been able to represent our university in the best possible manner; resulting in the following achievements:
Relay Race à 2nd place
Basketball à 2nd place
Soccer (♂) à 2nd place (overtime loss in the penalty shoot-out)
The Volleyball team has given it all in a very hard-fought and difficult group stage and the Cheerleading team has once again delivered a very impressive performance; both of which unfortunately could not make it among the top three.
However, it is worth mentioning that both these teams were first to return to practice; and are now more ready and motivated than ever to prove themselves at the next big event; the “Champions Trophy 2017”.
On behalf of the whole team, we would like to give a big thank you to eGym for the huge support and we are looking forward to further successful cooperation in the future.
Mia San TUM
