Dr. Omar Alhawi, the Dean of Student Affairs, reaffirmed that engaging in sports does not only provide health advantages but more so positivity and motivation to perform better in academics and at work.
Fitness classes, virtual lecture on behaviours in nutrition, colour marathon, group ball games, tug of war, billiards, soccer dart, table tennis, and baby foot among others enlivened the National Sports Day at UTB.

The occasion kicked off with a fitness conditioning workout led by Khalid Yusuf, a BSBI alumnus who is currently a CrossFit coach.
Faculty members, administrative staff and students heated up the morning with couple rounds of high leg raises, in place jogs, jumping jacks and more.
Holding a plank for more than 6 minutes is no joke. Above health, it’s about strength, determination and balance.
For a follow-through with health and fitness goals, students enjoyed different fun sports activities.
Whether it’s 5k run or not, the fun atmosphere of the colour marathon sparked happiness and agility among the students.
