Bringing Home The Medals from MBAT!

Written on July 18, 2016 by Campus Life in Sports

IESE Spring Games was an incredible warm up for us. With a team that had never played before we learned each other’s rhythms and built a sense of team chemistry. The biggest part of a team is learning how we congeal and gel together –supporting each other against the defense.

When we were at The Spring Games we were cheering and singing our anthem of Instituto De Empressa. It was such a strong and distinct cheer that a large troop of LBS students decided to sing along with us whenever we were playing. Our cheers were contagious and it put us on a high for MBAT.Football4Football3

MBAT was a sports tournament unlike any other with hundreds of students from around Europe. We had two teams compete so that all of the girls had a lot of playing time. Both teams rolled through to the Semi-finals! One team ended up playing for 3rd place in an intense penalty shootout ended up 4th place in the entire tournament. Hundreds of IE Students were crowding around rushing the field after every kick. The rush and adrenaline were unlike anything else with the IE chants booming. Even the group of LBS students who we had met earlier at IESE Games came out to cheer and chant our song with us. Our second team plowed through to the finals and ended up 2nd place in another Penalty kick shootout.

The IE teams stood together with the men and women’s teams completely united and supporting each other through wins!! Our men’s team also took home a medal.

Our collaboration and synchronization of our men and women’s teams are what drove us to be a very decorated team of medals. It has been an honor and pleasure to see such strong team camaraderie and cheering.
