Physical Education and Sports have played a major role in shaping the personality of a child. In colleges, sports play an important role in the physical and mental development of students. Intercollegiate competitions form the major sports programs which can be participated in by a majority of the students and this leads them to being selected for inter university competitions. Like in many other universities, in Mangalore University also there is the fight for sports supremacy by many of the colleges. This study has selected a few of the icon colleges of Mangalore University and has studied the trend in their performances over the years. The investigator has observed that some of the colleges have left their years of sports excellence behind them while some are struggling in the face of other emerging colleges. Since these colleges have existed for more than 50 years, there was a need to document the trend in their sports performances. The data has been gathered over 20 years and is presented in the form of trend line charts to give a clear picture to the readers.
