The 3rd Maspore, the Malaysia-Singapore Sikh games aimed at promoting friendship, unity and sportsmanship among the community, were held earlier this month in Ipoh, Perak.
Some 300 Sikh athletes and officials took part in the games which were first started in 2014 in Perak with only one sport.
This time around, they had four sports: netball, hockey, badminton and soccer, said games director Jasbir Singh Nannuan.
The teams taking part in the two-day event were Buntong Sikhs (Perak), Punjabi FC (Kuala Lumpur), Jurong Sikhs (Singapore) and United Bros (Penang and Kedah). The Klang Sikhs took part in hockey.
The 4th Maspore games next year will be held in Penang.
