Pakistan Army has once again made the nation proud by emerging victorious in a prestigious international competition.
Pak Army recently took part in the International Pace Sticking Competition held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
The team from Pakistan Military Academy emerged victorious despite the fact that the team only started learning about the drill exercise two months ago and it was their first time ever in the competition.
This year’s International Pace Sticking Competition was attended by 19 teams in total including four international teams from Pakistan, Bahrain, Oman, and Jordan.
The rest of the teams comprised of various British army battalions including 1st Battalion Welsh Guards, Army Training Centre Pirbright, Honourable Artillery Company, 1st Battalion Scots Guards, and RMAS amongst others.
The competition took place on the parade square just in front of the steps of Old College. Each team was made up of four members; a driver who delivered the words of command to three team members behind him who followed.
The objective of the drill was to provide uniformity in the use of the stick and provide a high standard of steadiness and cohesion in front of the instructors.
As easy as the competition may sound, it is actually quite complicated thanks many factors such as sweaty and clammy hands in the summertime which can easily cause the stick to slip all over the place.
