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)

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)

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

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: Contract Bridge

Last year at the Inter-Faculty Games, Team Law fought tooth and nail in an arduous battle that spanned two long days. Victory was at hand, but Team Law narrowly missed a shot at the finals after Medicine squeezed a 1.8-point lead that dashed the hopes and dreams of Team Captain Simon Poh (Y2). He swore...

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)

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

  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...

I’ll like to start this article with a shout out to ESPN and the experimental low seat camera angle they used broadcasting a college game. The photos in this article were taken from a similar angle.

Law Med Handball (Women's)

Law Med Handball (Women’s)

  The fury of the blazing afternoon sun scourged the backs of the handballers. Sweat dripping underneath the crimson red jersey as their spirits soared like electricity up their spines. Ah, the smell of sport was heavy in the air. The girls collected their courage and bedazzled on court but alas, Medicine proved too strong...
