Xtremely Young Zoroastrians (XYZ) organized its Athletic Meet on 28th January, 2018, at the University Stadium, Marine Lines, with over 300 participants representing various XYZ groups and competing in various categories including Under-7, Under-10, Under-12 and Under-16. Designed to test the kids on stamina, strength and strategy, the races were not restricted to 100m, 200m and 400m, but also included games with a twist, viz. Small Feet Big Shoes (U-7), Shoe Bind Race (U-10) and Sack Race (U-12). Events like long jump, shot put, tug of war and races for XYZ Moms, Dads and the Organizers had the crowd shouting and cheering for their favourite teams. Ketayun’s Conquerors (The Boarding section of Ava Bai Petit Girls School, Bandra) won the overall Championship. The meet concluded with winners receiving medals, certificates and the new XYZ currency, ‘XYROZ’, while thanking World Zoroastrian Trust Funds and the Manekji and Shirinbai Naterwalla Foundation for their support.
