In the semis, we went comfortably past Delhi to set up a final against Kanpur, and subsequently demolished them Weightlifting The weightlifting team put in an amazing performance to clinch the bronze on their last day.
Veerendra placed 3rd in the under kg category with a best Snatch of 77 kg and a huge 93 kg in Clean and Jerk to seal bronze. In the under kg category, Sai Prakash placed fourth with best lifts of 65 kg and 80 kg in Snatch and Clean and Jerk respectively.
Finally, Manoj, the captain, had an outstanding lift of 91 kg in his Snatch, backed up by a monumental kg Clean and Jerk, which won him gold, thereby clinching the bronze for IIT-M. Digvijay Bhandari captain and Soham Parikh alternated the first two singles while Krishnakanth and Nitish Reddy formed a formidable doubles pair.
Hari Pavan, the fifth player, took over if necessary. They faced a disappointing exit in the semifinal, largely due to injuries to two of the players, which forced them to move away from their usual playing order.
They put up a commendable fight even in their third-place match, although they lost to Kharagpur. Standing out in all their matches was fresher Soham, who won all of his games in straight sets, often confining his opponents to single digit scores versus With such exciting new talent and the prospect of a fitter team, they hope for a much better performance next year. A lack of coordination and communication hurt us, and attacking easily apparent weaknesses in our team, Roorkee closed the game in their favour, although it was nail-bitingly close until the end, with the last set actually going on to an extension.
Singles was a fair fight but this too ended in disappointment. Practice and perseverance are the only way forward for this team. A noticeable improvement from last year was a consistent doubles partner for Ankitha in Srishtika.
Ankitha has been known to be a strong hand, but the support she received from her team-mates made a big difference in the fortunes of the team. Overall, the team is happy about the tremendous improvement in their skills, thanks to their coach, and their focus now is on improving their fitness to clinch that gold that just eluded them.
The team had two strong singles players in Karthik captain and Shankar, both with their unique styles — the former a consistent player, the latter a hard hitter.

This would help them learn to handle crucial points to convert their hard work to success at future meets. This particular quarterfinal was a nail-bitingly close one.
But a failure to convert even one of them ended up in a lost opportunity to build a crucial lead. Bombay later equalised the scores and went on to make 2 additional points in the last 10 seconds. In semi-finals too, Madras outclassed Guwahati on their home court.
However, the final match was controversial owing to its refereeing. The referees called 19 fouls on the Madras team as compared to 1 on the Roorkee team — numbers that are unlikely, given the earlier performances of these teams. The issue was raised at the Sports Board and the referees were called for a hearing. However, the results remained unchanged.
This year again we clinched the gold, defeating Bombay in the finals. Although the league stage matches were easy, the team strategically came second behind BHU in their pool to avoid a tough fight in the quarters.
Consequently, they met Indore in quarters and beat them in straight games. Semifinals against Kharagpur were slightly tougher, but we won In the finals, we went on to beat Bombay The pressure on the Madras team to win the finals was immense, given its deciding nature on the GC By the time of TT finals, we had secured our only gold in Hockey and were losing in Badminton 3rd place playoffs.
