The long wait is over as University of St. La Salle opened the weeklong celebration of the Animolympics 2016: Greatness in Unity, January 11 at St. La Salle Coliseum.

 Br. Mawel Pajarillo, FSC, brother president and chancellor gave his welcoming speech at the opening ceremony.

 A special performance was showcased by the Animo Cheerforce during the opening and was officially followed by the cheering competition.

 Animolympics 2016 is from January 11 to 15, 2016.

 With their Native American - Indian inspired choreography, College of Business and Accountancy nailed the dance floor and was hailed back-to-back champions of the floor cheering competition.

 CBA’s yellow-shielded eagles dominated the coliseum by taking home also the best in bleacher cheering, best in choreography and best drum beater awards.

 On the other hand, they may be the smallest college but the red phoenix showed the crowd that numbers can’t bring them down as the College of Nursing bagged second place with their “Star Wars” routine.

The College of Education, focusing their very own Blue Dragon in their performance, was declared 3rd place, while College of Engineering tigers and the lions of the College of Arts and Sciences were awarded 4th and 5th places respectively.
