B.V.S.P.H.S. Rowing Team beats Grammar School in K.B.C. 2007 Regatta
In a recent rowing competition, the newly formed B.V.S. Rowing team obliterated Karachi Grammar School in the final round between the two qualifying teams at the Karachi Boat Club.
The B.V.S Parsi High School rowing team comprising of: Saadan Shaikh, Abdul Ahad and Rauhaan Hassan recently started rowing at the Karachi Boat Club and took part in the 2007 Regatta. Throughout the event the B.V.S. team had the upper hand and won the meets easily. Overall our team bagged 3 Gold’s and 1 Silver medal in the annual regatta, leaving everyone in shock as our team started rowing just two months before the event.
Apart from having fun, rowing is a great sport to keep fit. Strength is not the only thing that this sport requires, what is required is technique, skill, team spirit, devotion and last but the most important – willpower. It seems our young Virbaijeeites proved that they have what it takes to be champions.
This young team lead by Captain Saadan Shaikh also participated in the International Rowing Competition, which was held last month in Calcutta - India. The B.V.S.P.H.S. team stood 6th out of 11 international teams. Congratulation boys – way to go!
Participation in the International Rowing Competition would not have been possible without the support and sponsorship of Millac Pakistan. Managing Director of Millac Mr. Farrukh Ikram is also a Virbaijeeite (Class of 1978) and we thank him for supporting and sponsoring his school team with a huge Rs. 200,000 sponsorship. Thank you Farrukh from Virbaijeeites all over the world.
Keep that flag flying high. Eyes Right to the B.V.S. Rowing Team.
Towards that Best Light.
