Exercise is extremely vital for maintaining our physical health. However, the Faculty of Dentistry University Malaya Interbatch Games does more than just promoting the health of dental students. It serves as a platform for dental students from all years to bond together and interact. It also fosters teamwork and unity amongst dental students which are important values to have. This year, the Interbatch Games was held on the 25th of February 2017. It is organized by the second year students annually and the director for this year is Foong Yeong Jui. The games were held in the Ibnu Sina Residential College this year. The interbatch games started at 8 a.m. in the morning. The advisor of the event, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wan Himratul Aznita Wan Harun gave a speech at the opening ceremony to highlight the importance of this annual event and to motivate our students. This year, due to the limited number of participating students, 3 teams were formed. First year, second year and clinical years which are a combination of year 3,4 and 5 students. The first event held was Frisbee, which was a mixed event. It was a close match but eventually the clinical years won first place, followed by the second years. Up next was the basketball match, which was divided into male and female. For the male basketball competition, the clinical years took home the first place while second place was won by the first years. The female basketball match on the other hand was won by the clinical years and second place fell to the second years. The futsal competition was held simultaneously with the basketball competition. The futsal event was only open to the guys. The second years managed to snatch the first place after a long and intense match with the clinical years, who settled for second place. The next event to be held was volleyball, which was a mixed event. After a gruelling battle, the clinical years won first place and second place was won by the first years. The final event of the day was captain ball, a mixed event which took place in the hall of the residential college. It was probably one of the most intense and exciting match of the day with teams scoring back and forth. But at the end of the day, the clinical years emerged triumphant and second place was won by the first years. At around 1 p.m., food was given out to all the contestants and the prizes were presented to the winning teams accordingly. This year’s Interbatch Games was a huge success and I hope that this tradition may continue to bridge the gap between all dental students for the many years to come.
