Jimmy Khalaff, Pegasus House Captain 2014

From the day I took up the position as captain of this house, I had no regrets. The success of what this sport house has achieved is due to the effort that everyone has put in for the past 8 months (since the committee was formed) leading to the events.

Of course, none of the achievements would have been accomplished without a dedicated and committed bunch that I am grateful to have. My vice captains, Yin Hoong Goh and Min Yen Lim – these two were probably Pegasus’s MVPs for the past two years. Our treasurer and cheerleading captain, Jowynna Yeo who did a wonderful job in building a cheer team that put on a great show during the event, not to mention the fundraisings she organized. Our secretery, Jonathan Francis, Pegasus’s very own ladies’ man J and very artistic and creative intelligence (have you seen our committee board? Yeap, those were his ideas) and our public relations officer, Kang Wan Jing who promoted Pegasus and was ever present in the sporting events.

It is good and encouraging that the nature of IMU Cup is becoming more and more competitive which signifies everyone’s enthusiasm in the sports. Certain events such as basketball,volleyball and cheerleading had a large crowd turnout, which was very motivating for the participants.

It is not everyday in IMU, that you have the opportunity to play sports at a competitive level with your colleagues, that is why everyone is and should be pumped up for this huge sporting event.

Pegasus has done an amazing job in this year’s IMU CUP securing a second place finish. Yes of course, we were left disappointed and slightly heartbroken that we did not claim the first spot, and we found it hard to lose by such a small point margin. However, we have to move on and accept what has been given and tell ourselves we have done our best, put in all the efforts we could, and be proud of our achievements.

What was more important was that we enjoyed ourselves, had a great bonding time with friends (which we don’t do very often in normal days in IMU), made new ones from other batches and courses, tried out in new things in life, and make ourselves healthy by playing the sports (which again IMU students don’t do very often!).

I would like to thank the whole Pegasus team for their big contribution for this year’s competition.
