This semester AUBG Olympics will introduce new activities. On Nov. 24 there will be another Challenging Wednesday, but this time students will play basketball. The club will hold the Skill Challenge on Nov. 28 in the ABF Sports Hall. AUBG Olympics will organize Baseball workshop on Dec. 5.

Before the event started, the teams had a chance to warm up by throwing the ball into the basket and playing with a volleyball ball. Also, the club members distributed the leaflets with the number for the subsequent lottery.
