Through the IFG, the Science athletes fostered stronger morale and teamwork, and built friendships. The IFG also provided recognition for the athletes who sacrificed their term break for intensive training.

Clymene LIM, Year 4 Life Sciences, Sports Committee Director, said, “The IFG represented the determination, passion and camaraderie of our athletes in their full glory. Our Science IFG theme ‘Invictus Arduis’, or ‘unconquered in difficulties’ was strongly exemplified by our athletes who showed a strong and indomitable spirit.”

HEE Xin Wei, Year 2 Life Sciences, Tchoukball (Mixed) team / Sports Committee Vice-Director, said, “The team for IFG changes every year but the essence of Team Science never changes - the desire and will to put in our best for each other.”

ER Jia Yun, Year 2 Statistics, Women’s Floorball team, said, “IFG is a good opportunity for students to pick up a new sport. Students also get to train and fight alongside teammates from their own faculty.”

Heather TAY, Year 2 Life Sciences, Table Tennis team, said, “I reignited my passion for a sport that I loved. It was enriching to see the awesome team spirit in the Science Faculty!”
