PANO - The Engineering Corps kicked off a sport festival on September 27 at Brigade 249.

The event drew nearly 1,000 athletes from 21 units of the corps to compete in seven categories, such as AK submachine gun shooting lesson 1, K54 pistol shooting lesson 1, military-related swimming, badminton, and volleyball, to name just a few.

After the opening ceremony, contestants took part in the AK submachine gun shooting lesion 1 and K91 obstacles, which received troops’ encouragement.

The People's Army Newspaper would like to introduce some images of the first competing day.
