Gov Games 2020 goes global with 'International City' category

Next year's games will include a category for international teams who will compete for a Dh1 million prize

The Gov Games are going global by adding a new category for international city teams.

The addition was announced by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, who also conceived of the Dubai government's high-energy team-building challenge last year.

He said adding the 'International City Teams' category to next year's event would transform the Gov Games into a global sporting event - in line with Dubai’s commitment to be a global example of teamwork, unity and tolerance.

Teams registered under the international category will compete for a Dh1 million prize.

Open to men and women, the city teams will have to complete the same Gov Games obstacles that host the men’s and women’s competitions for government departments from the UAE. Next year’s games will also be extended to run over five days, from this year’s four.

A total of Dh1.5m in prizes are up for grabs split between Dh1m for the winners, Dh300,000 for the runners up and Dh200,000 for the third place team.

This year’s winners - the F3 men’s team led by Sheikh Hamdan, and the F3 women’s team - both donated their D1h million winnings to charity.

Gov Games is organised by the Executive Council of Dubai in partnership with Dubai Sports Council.

Five healthy carbs and how to eat them

Brown rice: consume an amount that fits in the palm of your hand

Non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli: consume raw or at low temperatures, and don’t reheat  

Oatmeal: look out for pure whole oat grains or kernels, which are locally grown and packaged; avoid those that have travelled from afar

Fruit: a medium bowl a day and no more, and never fruit juices

Lentils and lentil pasta: soak these well and cook them at a low temperature; refrain from eating highly processed pasta variants

Top financial tips for graduates

Araminta Robertson, of the Financially Mint blog, shares her financial advice for university leavers:

1. Build digital or technical skills: After graduation, people can find it extremely hard to find jobs. From programming to digital marketing, your early twenties are for building skills. Future employers will want people with tech skills.

2. Side hustle: At 16, I lived in a village and started teaching online, as well as doing work as a virtual assistant and marketer. There are six skills you can use online: translation; teaching; programming; digital marketing; design and writing. If you master two, you’ll always be able to make money.

3. Networking: Knowing how to make connections is extremely useful. Use LinkedIn to find people who have the job you want, connect and ask to meet for coffee. Ask how they did it and if they know anyone who can help you. I secured quite a few clients this way.

4. Pay yourself first: The minute you receive any income, put about 15 per cent aside into a savings account you won’t touch, to go towards your emergency fund or to start investing. I do 20 per cent. It helped me start saving immediately.
