Sports Journalists Quiz League Gets Underway

Team Betway Agosto finished third in the first round

The maiden sports journalists quiz league began with pomp and stiff competition as various sports scribes put their heads to task about answering sports related questions.

The league got underway on Thursday evening at Route 256, Lugogo with ten teams taking part in the first round.

The big winners on the night were Team Tokyo 2020 and Team Big Size who ended the night with 125 points apiece to set the pace for the rest of the teams.

Team Betway Agosto settled for third with 122.5 points while Team Balongo and Team Nalufenya came fourth and fifth respectively.

The journalists competed in four sessions with the initial round being an open session where everyone was allowed to access Internet.

This was followed with a multiple questions period before the journalists were put to test on picture/image identification.

The fourth and final round involved a trivia question that carried 5 marks but surprisingly only two of the ten teams got this right.

Team Tokyo 2020 walked home with a cash prize of Shs300,000 while Team Big size and Team Betway Agosto got Sh200,000 and Shs150,000 respectively.

The league will run on 4 different occasions with the next three rounds coming on a monthly basis.
