2 November – Eight active members of IMU Board Games Club who are medical students at the University, took part in a chess tournament held by Perdana University which had a total of 85 participants. The competition was a great opportunity for them to showcase all their skills and talents, throughout the seven rounds of intense games. The Perdana University International Medical Chess Tournament 2019 organising team collaborated with Palliative Care for SMA Fighters Awareness in organising this event and this gave our players the opportunity to play with both disabled players (OKU) and others. During the games, they not only enjoyed the games but also shown the true essence of sportsmanship by helping and showing patience for the OKU players.
All the IMU players did well at the competition but two that stood out were Daryl Wong Cheng Lim and Keshvien Inbashekaran who were in the top three of the Medical Student Special Category Award.
