UADC 2013: UPD Best NUS in a Repeat of 2011 Final

University of the Philippines - Diliman campus
University of the Philippines - Diliman's Carlo Borromeo settled a score with National University of Singapore's Imran Rahim by defeating the latter's team in the final of the 2013 United Asian Debating Championships. In the penultimate debate of UADC 2011, he and his previous partners bowed to a NUS squad, which also had Imran as a member.

Last night, the proposal from #3 UPD 1 (Carlo Borromeo, Jesus Falcis, Valerie Inting) to ban inheritance withstood the challenge from #1 NUS 1 (Imran Rahim, Kelvin Chong, Xiao Hongyu), the only unbeaten team in the prelims. That victory gave UPD its first UADC trophy. Imran did not come home empty as he earned the overall best speaker title, the same honour  he got in the 2011 edition.
