Regardless of the 12-school drop out, Lyceum International Wattala went past Gateway College Colombo to clinch the all-important International Schools Athletic Championship held at the Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium, Diyagama over the last few days.
Lyceum Wattala dominated the score-sheet with 1443 points as Gateway College Colombo bagged 984 points. Lyceum Nugegoda came in third with 774 points.
Sports Minister Hon. Dayasiri Jayasekara was present as the chief guest of the athletic championship.
Meanwhile, the event was held without a security hassle despite the circulation of threat letters to several international schools within Colombo. Opposed to the 3000+ student count, only a very few participated at this year’s meet.
