Congratulations to the SFU Beedie MBA Team for winning the gold medal for dodgeball at the Corporate Champions Vancouver 2011! Here is an excerpt from the Official CCV Blog about our win.
“As the night progressed, an underdog story was born: SFU Beedie School of Business who had lost their first playoff matches against the 13th seed, Impark, moved through the back-door bracket, winning six matches to bring them to the finals against the undefeated, Electronic Arts.
Although City of Vancouver fought hard to move into the championship round, they were swept aside by SFU and accepted a well-deserved bronze medal.
In the finals, Electronic Arts gained an early break advantage with a 2-1 lead in a best-of-five-games match. One game away from winning the title, SFU pummeled their way back to win the first match. However, because of the double elimination structure, SFU had to defeat EA in one more match before they could claim their gold medals. Sleeves rolled up, heart pumping, and sweat dripping—both teams laid down the rest of themselves to play at their very best. When all the dodgeballs finally rested peacefully on the ground and the battle had ceased, the only team left standing victoriously was SFU.”
