International Schools Athletic Championship 2018 (ISAC) 2018

International Schools Athletic Championship 2018 was held on 23rd, 24th and 25th February 2018 at Diyagama Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium, Homagama . The International Schools Athletic Championships (ISAC), which commenced in 2001 was the brainchild of the Founder, late Mr. R. I. T. Allas of Gateway College, has now established itself as the biggest national flagship sporting event in the school calendar of The International Schools of Sri Lanka (TISSL). This year’s ISAC has special significance for Lyceum International School, Nugegoda as this was the 9th time that we took over the organization of such a challenging meet. Around 1500 athletes from the International Schools mentioned above, competed in 106 events for both boys and girls. Also major props have to be given to the organizing committee for all their hard work and contribution towards this event. Initially it was planned to have the event take place in Sugathadasa Stadium, Colombo. But because the stadium was under construction, the venue had to be changed to Diyagama Mahinda Rajapakse stadium. Despite all these hardships, the organizing committee, under the guidance of Mrs.Kumari Grero Chairperson of The International Schools Sri Lanka and ISAC 2018 did all the planning and managed to make this year’s ISAC a memorable experience for all the participants. Professor Mohan De Silva, the Chairman of the University Grants Commission graced this year’s ISAC by participating as the chief guest. One of the changes which was done at this year’s ISAC was not choosing a champion at the end of the event. Instead, medals were given for the winners of each event and there were winners from almost every school at the end. But the most outstanding performances were recorded from Lyceum International School, Wattala. Athletes from Lyceum international School, Wattala was able to conquer 93 medals altogether including 39 gold medals, 33 silver medals and 21 bronze medals at the end of the event and stood out at the best performers. The second best performers of the event were from Gateway College, Colombo as they were able acquire 65 medals including 22 gold medals, 18 silver medals and 25 bronze medals.
