LawMed 2017: Soccer (Women's)

LawMed 2017: Soccer (Women’s)

Presenting to you… *drum roll please* your star players, history makers, game changers from the Faculty of Law! Okay, I kid, but we (or rather, our star player, Shannon) did make history by scoring our very first 2 goals since the beginning of time.     The first half proved to be teeth clenching as...
LawMed 2017: Handball (Men's)

LawMed 2017: Handball (Men’s)

“Eh, Law vs Medicine sia! But why only these two faculties ah like so elitist…” Shifting uncomfortably, I tried to cover the ‘NUS LAW’ logo on my shirt in case the passer-by directed that question to me. I focussed my attention on our warriors in red: Our dedicated team arrived early in the morning to...
LawMed 2017: Captain's Ball

LawMed 2017: Captain’s Ball

It is sometimes frustrating that man plays second fiddle to nature – for example, when one has taken the time to plan something, only for the weather to threaten to ruin everything. The day of the LawMed Captain’s Ball match was one of such instances. The weather was not kind – cloudy skies, intermittent strong winds and persistent lightning...
LawMed 2017: Basketball (Men's)

LawMed 2017: Basketball (Men’s)

It is that time of the year again. That’s right folks, the annual LawMed games (men’s basketball series) is back again to showcase the finest players of the sport from both the Law and Medicine faculties. For this year’s edition, the author has the pleasure of providing in-depth coverage straight out of the players’ bench....
LawMed 2017: Volleyball (Men's)

LawMed 2017: Volleyball (Men’s)

One thing I remember being told countless times by many different volleyball enthusiasts is that volleyball is a rather mechanical sport. One guy gets the ball in control (the dig), the next guy pushes into the air (the set) and the last guy tries to slam it into the opponent’s half of the court (the...
LawMed 2017: Basketball (Women's)

LawMed 2017: Basketball (Women’s)

Once upon a time, I naively thought that basketball meant “ooh, assault” and “ooh, battery”. I stand corrected (as my Learned Friend whispered to me as I was wincing at a spectacular fall of one of the players, “You know that there’s a reason why we don’t get basketball match related cases for torts, right?”)....
LawMed 2017: Floorball (Men)

LawMed 2017: Floorball (Men)

TLDR WE WERE 1st RUNNER UP.   In the wee hours of Sunday morning, a group of young men woke up and eagerly grabbed their sticks to make their way down for the Law-Med floorball match. (With the exception of Ryan Ong who had no respect for the reporting time and sauntered in an hour...
LawMed 2017: Tchoukball

LawMed 2017: Tchoukball

As of time of writing, I have become possibly the only person in the history of NUS Law to have ever attended two consecutive Tchoukball competitions. In light of this revelation, I hereby declare that I have become, consequently, the number one fan of Tchoukball in the Faculty of Law, for now and possibly forever....
LawMed 2017: Foosball

LawMed 2017: Foosball

tl;dr law won 6-1. This year’s LawMed foosball was almost as scintillating as the men’s football game in which our young lads led by Athletics Director Josiah Tham beat Medicine 1-0 the day before. In fact, it was probably more exciting. It was non-stop excitement the entire afternoon at BTC with 5 men’s doubles matches...
LawMed 2017: Soccer (Men)

LawMed 2017: Soccer (Men)

The next twist in the footballing rivalry between our two esteemed faculties took place on the afternoon of the 11th of February 2017. Having played to a 0-0 stalemate in our previous encounter at Inter-Faculty Games 2016 before watching Medicine eventually go on to lift the trophy, this was the chance for redemption. It was...
LawMed 2017: Badminton

LawMed 2017: Badminton

  Here’s how Badminton at LawMed 2016 went down: The first thing Kyle (Y3), the team captain, told me was that about half the proper Law badminton team was gone, and amongst them were our best players. Could team Law overcome this disastrous setback to pull an upset victory? After a series of warmups, team...
IFG Roundup: Netball

IFG Roundup: Netball

  After several false starts, the Netball IFGs, which were postponed once due to the haze and then again because of the rain, kicked off at 12.30pm at the Netball courts near Utown. I arrived at the tail end of warm-ups and players were doing last minute stretches, trimming their finger nails to pass the...
