A busy monday afternoon at Vizag came to a grinding halt as close to 400 people converged at the GITAM campus for the city edition of Tata Crucible. The teams were soon into quizzing mode as quizmaster Pickbrain presented a rather tricky prelim. The following six made it to the final.
ICAI: Lalith Reddy and NithinKhurana
Indian Maritime University: Sainath Atul Nashikkar & Sachin Mirashi
GITAM University: Ayyappa and Ankur B
GITAM University: Raghuram and Kamesh
Aditya Global Biz School: Ayyappa and Ankur B
GITAM University: Shyam and Rishi Sai Reddy
Champions, GITAM University: Ayyappa and Ankur B
The final was a wonderful experience for the entire audience. It began with all teams playing well early on, but as the quiz moved rapidly from one question to another, the GITAM duo were in action cracking the questions, at will.
It was a stunning effort from there on by GITAM represented by Ayyappa and Ankur. Their ability to crack nearly everything at will reflected on how well they were prepared for the battle. While no team could challenge them to the top spot, it was the team Indian Maritime University that managed to come in as runners-up.
The winners move to the zonal from here. The guest of honour Mr. Kiran Bussari, GM Taj Gateway, Vizag appreciated the teams for a superb performance and gave them the prizes.
