Gold Rush for Stallions at 7th NPUGA, President Dekle Lauds Team

The Stallions galloped to victory at the 7th Nigeria Private Universities Games in Abuja, and the AUN Community is ecstatic.

 

In spectacular fashion and living up to their pre-tournament billing, AUN won three gold medals, eight silver medals, and six bronze medals.

AUN men won Gold both in 800m and in Chess. The female team bested all comers in the prestigious 4x100m relay.

Winning the shiniest medal in Chess, the acclaimed ‘Strategy Sport’, cements American University of Nigeria’s reputation as the intellectual capital of Nigerian private universities.

President Dekle has described the Stallions’ feat as ‘amazing’ and a ‘testament to discipline, training, and commitment, core to our values as a learning community.’

Director, Residence Life and leader of AUN’s contingent, Abdullahi Bello, described the medals haul as “our best ever in the history of NPUGA”.

The Stallions clinched the gold medals in 800m (male), classical chess (male), and 4x100 relay (female). They won silver medals in 100m (male), discus (male), triple jump (male), 100m freestyle swimming, javelin (female), as well as in individual chess, individual scrabble, and team chess.

The Team also won bronze medals in table tennis doubles (female), table tennis doubles (male), basketball (male), badminton singles (male), blitz chess, and team badminton (male).

The games, which began on December 7 at Nile University, ended on Wednesday, December 20.
