15 Medals At The SUKIPT 2022

Celebrating our student athletes as SUKIPT come to an end

Throwing back to August, APU's contingents had a prosperous sports season celebrating their triumph over the SUKIPT 2022. Here are quick recaps of our teams’ successful seasons.
Sukan Institusi Pengajian Tinggi (SUKIPT) — is a biennial national event that is part of the Higher Education Ministry's efforts to develop and advance sports at the IPT, national and international levels, in an integrated manner.
Athletes from 67 universities competed in 21 different types of games in the tournament. Our contingents consist of 45 students who participated in 8 different sports: Taekwondo, Karate, Golf, Swimming, Table Tennis, Track & Field, Chess, and Badminton.
APU contingents had a busy and productive season
SUKIPT preparations began at the start of the year, when each APU sports club was informed of the competition to select their best athlete to represent APU.
Since then, our athletes have been devoting their time after classes to training and hustling throughout the season in the hopes of taking home a few medals in the intense competition with exceptional competitors.
For some athletes, this competition was about developing the skills for the sport they already loved. For others, it holds a special meaning behind to discover new possibilities and challenging themselves to strive further than before.
Throughout the preparation, our APU contingents did a fantastic job of coming together to learn their own strengths and weaknesses, to bond and care for fellow teammates, and to show off their sportsmanlike and competitive nature all while training together.
It’s Show Time!
On 9th August, APU’s senior leadership flagged off 45 student-athletes who are participating in the highly anticipated SUKIPT 2022, wishing them best of luck while hoping for good news to come.
