The Jamat of the Far East came together in the spirit of unity to showcase their athletic skills at the annual Sports Festival.

Pakistan’s Diamond Jubilee Sports Festival (DJSF) reached its apex earlier this year with an iconic National Games at the Jinnah Complex in Islamabad. Over 1300 athletes from eight regions competed for medals in 17 different sports, supported by enthusiastic crowds. We take a look back at the iconic event.

Day 3 of the DJSF National Games in Islamabad saw fierce competition as more medals were decided, with all the sports except cricket and football concluding their final matches by the end of the day. It was a day of hard-won matches and another gruelling day for the volunteers - in today's round up we talk to some of the volunteers that made the Diamond Jubilee Sports Festival a success.
