In the national sports competition Liga Mahasiswa (LIMA), a student-athlete of UPH Eagles competing under the badminton category won the title of Women’s Singles Champion.

With the resulting points of 21-19 and 21-13, the winner was UPH Eagles’ very own Vioni Florencya.

To be able to judge which activities are more important and to be able to work hard in each activity are the challenging aspects to her strategy; As Florencya recalled, she struggled with these challenges when she was preparing for the LIMA Nationals.
“Before going on the nationals, I must go through the regionals first. However, I could not continue the match because of my hand and foot injuries. I am still grateful that I was able to achieve second place. After that, I prepared myself for the
