WOMEN’S COLLEGE MA ROAD CROSS-COUNTRY RUN
Srinagar, Apr 18: Insha Wadoo cruised to victory in the annual Cross-Country Run of Government Women’s College (GWC) MA Road held from Oberoi crossing Boulevard to Nishat garden here on Wednesday.
In the run that was flagged off by senior members of the college, Professor Zahida Dev and Professor Muhammad Maqbool Rather, around 80- students participated.
From the start, Insha, a 1st year Home Science student managed to sprint away from rest of the competitors and got considerable lead. There was no real threat to her all through the race course as none of her competitors were able to get close to her. She cruised to victory with the timing of 26.30 minutes while Shayista, final year student and last year champion finished second with the timing of 27.25 minutes. Nighat of final year finished third. Iqra Qadir of second year and Iqra Sameer of second year finished second and third respectively.
The prize distribution ceremony was held at Nishat garden in which the College Principal was the chief guest who distributed prizes among the winners.
Speaking on the occasion he said, “I’m delighted to see girls participating in the event in large numbers. It is good to participate in sports events as it helps build physical health as well as strong character of the person”.
Iqra credited her win to the daily hard work she puts in during practice sessions.
“It is only because of my hard work that I am able to win this event. It was my first college race and I wanted to prove myself in it,” she said.
The first three position holders will represent college in the inter-college cross-country run on May 17.
