The way LPU has always supported its sportspersons and encouraged them to take part in superior competitions in front of a bigger audience by providing an appropriate platform and training, boosting their confidence, and making our names high has been phenomenal. LPU and its students have remained in the top books in the sports departments with the students participating in district, state, national and international levels gaining worldwide recognition carrying the name of their family, friends, well-wishers, and our university.

Whether it is Tokyo Olympics or a World Championship, Pro-Kabaddi league, or a state-level competition, the students of LPU have shined everywhere at each stage and enabled our university to be recognized as a top sports complex with multi-facility areas in different types of sports with vigorous training and amazing opportunities to explore. The names of Neeraj Chopra, Mandeep Singh, and the other six hockey players, and Bajrang Punia have ruled the world after their mind-shattering performance in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 securing gold and bronze medals respectively for the country making it the best run in the Olympics to date for India, a matter to be extremely proud of and something we never can truly stop talking about! The way we have felt our chests rise every time our national anthem played and our national flag rising high amid an ocean of countries has been a flabbergasting experience of all of us feeling chills all over our body even while sitting at our homes, such irreplaceable moments!

Yet again, another LPU student has allowed us to be proud of and swell our chests with pride by winning a gold medal at the All India Inter-University Karate Championship (AIIUKC) 2022 held at Kurukshetra University, Haryana. Mesom Singhi, a student of LPU from Arunachal Pradesh had participated in the competition on the behalf of our university and as a trend that LPU students follow of never being a disappointment; she secured the first position and a gold medal outplaying every other student there. When asked what her greatest challenge was, she replied rather cleverly by saying that conquering herself was her biggest challenge and more significant than conquering her opponents.

AIIUKC was held from 14th March to 17th March with the participation of over 175 universities; Mesom Singhi was the only north-eastern student to win a gold medal in the individual kata. The government of Arunachal Pradesh has announced Rs.5000 as a cash award for each medal-winning candidate for encouraging the, to win more in the upcoming tournaments and make the nation proud.

Previously, Mesom Singhi has also won a gold medal at the Senior National E-Kata Championship that was organized by the Karate Association of India (KAI) becoming the first to grab a gold medal from Arunachal Pradesh in the senior category. We wish her all the best for her upcoming events and may she win more medals and make everyone proud!
