Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], May 31 (ANI): A 10-gold day helped Panjab University, Chandigarh (PUC), soar to the top of the 3rd Khelo Indian University Games (KIUG) 2022 Uttar Pradesh (UP) medal tally, leaving behind rivals Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU), Amritsar, who are now second, with initial leaders and defending champions Jain University, Karnataka, now finding themselves in third position.

A total of 15 golds were decided on the final day of the Athletics competition and MGU, Kottayam were the most successful with three golds.
In Rowing the table toppers bagged five of the 15 golds on offer on the final day at the Ramgarh Taal in Gorakhpur. Punjabi University picked up three while Calicut University won two gold medals. Overall, PUC won 11 gold, four silver and six bronze medals in Rowing for a total of 21 medals, a big reason for their top position in the standings.
