The Sathya Sai Young Adults of Dubai held their annual Sai Sports Day on 11th January 2019 at the GEMS World Academy in Dubai. There were 335 people in attendance, including many Sai Spiritual Education (SSE) children and their parents. Participants were divided into four contingents – Sathya, Dharma, Shanti and Prema. The event kicked off with a march-past, an oath-taking ceremony and a torch relay by the Young Adults that ended with the lighting of the lamp. The Sports Day featured traditional track events such as a 50-metre sprint and a 400-metre endurance race, as well as ‘speed walking’ for seniors who were 50 years or older. For the SSE children, there were fun events such as the “Lemon and Spoon” race and a hurdles race. Spectators enjoyed watching young children, aged 5 and under, compete in the ‘Football Penalty Shootout’ and the ‘Hurdle Climb.’ The most anticipated event of the day was the Cricket game, with everyone cheering on their respective Sai team. The event concluded with the distribution of prizes, with medals for individual events and trophies for group events.
