Sporting fun at Stamford

OVER 200 Stamford College staff and students flocked to the field at YMCA in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur to test their physical limits at the annual Stamford Sports Carnival.  

Football, badminton, netball, basketball and table tennis were the games they competed in. 

Stamford College Kuala Lumpur director Dr Anuar Ahmad said the carnival was aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle among the staff and students as they should not be too engrossed with working or studying. 

“It is important to balance education with sport activities. In fact, extra-curricular activities do help students to improve their studies,” he said when opening the event last month. 

He added: “At the same time, this carnival is aimed at fostering unity and a better relationship among the staff and students within the Stamford College Group.” 

Yong Sheek Mong, who won the first prize in the badminton men’s singles competition, said the carnival was a good idea as “it’s not about winning but enjoying yourself through sports and being free from stress.”
