The Institute of Chemistry (IC) held the IClympics 2016 last January 14 to 15 at the Lower Field and EB Copeland Gym, UPLB. IClympics, formerly named IC Sports Fest, is an annual sports event open to all faculty members, staff, students and alumni housed by the institute. It was organized by the IC Sports Committee with Korina Vida Sinad as the Head.

The participants were divided into two groups: the Blue Team and the Green Team. These teams competed in different matches in Badminton, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Basketball. The Blue Team emerged victorious in Badminton, Men’s and Mixed Table Tennis, Men’s Volleyball and Men’s Basketball, while the Green Team won in Mixed Volleyball, Women’s Table Tennis and Women’s Basketball.

IClympics aims to build sportsmanship and camaraderie, and promote health and wellness among the constituents of the institute.
