University of Strathclyde wins the UK championship for the third time at
Tata Crucible UK 2012
Anup Nair and Michael Doroszenko from The University of Strathclyde won the coveted title of UK champions for the third year in succession at the 5th annual Tata Crucible UK Campus Quiz 2012 held at the IET London Savoy Place on 25th November 2012.
Nair and Doroszenko managed to retain their hold on the much coveted trophy after fighting off a stiff competition from London Business School in what was described by Quizmaster ‘Pickbrain’ as the closest Crucible Campus Quiz the UK has ever seen. London Business School emerged as the first runners up and University of Manchester emerged as the second runners up. Both the teams were hot on the tail of University of Strathclyde until the last few questions of the competition. Lord McNally, Minister of State for Justice and deputy leader of the House of Lords was the chief guest for the evening along with Dr Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover and gave away the prizes and the trophy to the winners. University of Strathclyde and London Business School will travel later in 2013 to compete against the top 2 teams from Singapore and India for the international championship in April 2013.
