AUI 2013: UGM, Amir Abdul Aziz Win Third Trophy of This Year

UGM B (Amir Abdul Aziz, Erwina Salsabila, Romario Tambunan)
2013 is less than 3 months old but Universitas Gadjah Mada has scored a hat-trick with the victory in this year's Aku Untuk Indonesiaku Debate in Surabaya. UGM teams previously won the Solo Open Debating Championship and the ALSA Unpad E-Challenge. In each winning team, there was fourth-year student Amir Abdul Aziz.

#1 UGM B (Amir Abdul Aziz, Erwina Salsabila, Romario Tambunan) defeated schoolmates #3 UGM B (Alif Satria, Dianty Widyowati, Indriani Pratiwi) in today's final at Universitas Kristen Petra. Each time UGM wins this year, one of its debaters grabs the best speaker but never the same person. This time, freshman Alif Satria topped the tab above his seniors. The ex-WSDC debater has now collected 2 championships and 1 best speaker title long before the end of his first year.

The English Parade will start tomorrow in Malang with 4 UGM teams on the list. They are obviously hot favourites. Four trophies within less than 3 months would be record-setting.
