The First Inter Alumni Arm Wrestling took place at St. Xavier’s School gym on Saturday, 21st July, 2012, under the leadership of Mr. Sharat Singh. 5 school alumni of Kolkata were invited. Namely Birla Blusters, Calcutta Crushers, Lamartinere Devils, James Smashers, Julian Jackers and last but not the least the rocks of Gibraltar, the master of disaster – the Xaverian Hitman.
The matches were held in a specially constructed boxing ring and arm wrestling tables put into it for greater impact. A WWE style belt was made for the winning team.
We even had a friendly arm wrestling with Fr. George Ponodath (Rector) Vs. Mr. Aditya Vikram Lodha (Hon. Secretary). Some Ladies and kids got into the ring to dance to the music as well, after the event. Any event’s success is measured by the crowd and we had a fair measure of families in.
The finals were between the St. James School team (smashers) and St. Xavier’s School (ALSOC) team. We had 4 times arm wrestling national champion (95 batch) Mr. Dev Malya Sengupta winning the belt for St. Xavier’s School & Alsoc and covering us with glory. Fr. Boris D’Santos & Fr. Peter Arockiam handed over the prize to the winner team and runner up team and followed by snacks.
