2012 was a special year for the sportsmen and women of University of Colombo. They achieved the almost impossible. They were crowned triple champions at the Inter University games 2012, a feat that no other university has managed to achieve in the last 3 decades.  University of Colombo retained the Inter University Games overall championship for the last 3 years, but 2012 saw Colombo crowned Women’s and Men’s overall champions as well.

Victory does not come easy. It takes a lot of hard work, commitment, dedication and sacrifices.  In recognition of this, the sports felicitation ceremony of the University of Colombo was held on the 31st of January 2013 by the Amalgamated Club to show their appreciation to all the sports men and women  who contributed towards winning the overall championship. The occasion was graced by Vice Chancellor, Professor Kshanika Hirimburegama, the acting Vice chancellor and the Bursar of the University.

It was an evening of celebration and concluded with all the teams exuberant, upbeat and looking forward to the upcoming Sri Lanka University Games (SLUG ) 2013.
