PEC Student Bags Gold at The All India Interuniversity Taekwondo Tournament

PEC prides itself on the outstanding achievements of its diverse student body and a recent win has added another feather to the institute's cap.

Nishant Jaggal, a second year student of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Punjab Engineering College Chandigarh, won the Gold Medal at All India Interuniversity Taekwondo Tournament  (in the weight category 68 Kg to 74 Kg). The competitive tournament was held at MDU Rohtak, from 8 to 12 March 2019, and saw participation from around 150 universities from all over India.

Based on his stellar performance in the tournament and the subsequent national trials, Nishant was selected for the Indian University Team, which will represent the country at the 'World University Games' to be held in Napoli, Italy in July.

When asked about what drives him, the 19 year old said, "What I like about Taekwondo is that it enhances one's self esteem by heightening his physical as well as mental powers." Nishant has been learning the Korean martial art for 8 years and is thrilled to have reached this degree of success in a sport he is so passionate about.

The institute looks forward to talented young students like Nishant representing India at a prestigious international competition.
