Munchee, the flagship brand of Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL), strengthened its support for the prestigious 20th annual International Schools’ Championships (ISAC) by awarding the Best Male and Female Athlete awards and extending its partnership as the principal sponsor for 2020.


This year ISAC brought sporting talent to the surface as Shelinda Jansen from Gateway College Colombo emerged Best Female Athlete - 100m with a new meet record of 11.94 seconds while Sandun Kumara from Lyceum International School emerged as Best Male Athlete with yet another new meet record for Triple Jump with 15.44 meters.
