Ashvamedha 18: 1st Annual Sports Fest of IIT Bhubaneswar

Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar, conducted the first edition of annual sports Fest Ashvamedha’18. This first edition of the sports extravaganza was a huge success. The event was scheduled over the period of two days during 27th-28th January 2018, at the permanent campus of IIT Bhubaneswar. Twenty-five (25) teams from thirteen different colleges around Bhubaneshwar and Cuttack participated in this event to take home a shiny trophy and a handsome cash award in the three games the institute had to offer, namely, Basketball, Mini-Football, and Volleyball. The award ceremony was facilitated by the presence of Prof. R. V. Rajakumar, Director, IIT Bhubaneswar, Prof. V.R. Pedireddi, Dean (SA) and Dr. Sankarsan Mohapatro, President, Students’ Gymkhana and Dr. Venugopal A, Faculty Advisor (Sports & Games).


As quoted by Prof. R.V. Rajakumar, Director, IIT Bhubaneswar “Sports are a means to bring together people from different domains of life”. Ashvamedha witnessed this in a cut throat competition among the future engineers, doctors and lawyers, who participated in this event to showcase their sportsmanship.  The institute is looking forward towards conducting the event at a much larger scale in the coming years as the sports infrastructure of the institute will be fully functional within the next six to Eight months. And we can all hope to see this small initiative grow into grandeur in terms of sports festivity around the nation within few years.
