The prize distribution ceremony of annual sports week was held at Foundation University here. Foundation University Rector Maj Gen (r) Khadim Hussain, was the chief guest, while University Director Brigadier (r) Dr. Akhtar Nawaz Malik was also present on the occasion.

The events of the Gala included cricket, football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, futsal, fun games, athletics, spoon race, sack race, chatti race,

war.

The rector distributed the prizes among the winners of different competitions.

While addressing the gathering, the rector said that, “the importance of sports and other co-curricular activities cannot be over emphasised. Besides providing the much needed physical activity, these are also important for the personality development of the students.” He said, such events also play an important role in breaking the monotony of exhaustive academic schedules and refresh the tired minds.

The rector said that sports are an incredibly important contributor to human nature. “Participation in sports and games are healthy activities which kindle the fire of struggle, excellence and competition,” he added.

“The University is fully aware of the importance of sports and is making dedicated endeavours to provide adequate opportunities to the students to participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor games. I take this opportunity to congratulate those who won prizes in different competitions. However, those who could not secure a position should not lose heart and strive hard to win next time”, he said.
