Pakistan Army wins Pace Sticking Competition for 3rd consecutive year

RAWALPINDI – Pakistan Army has once again won the Pace Sticking Competition at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, UK.

Pakistani troops participated for the first time in the drill in 2018.

High Commissioner Moazzam Ahmad Khan wished the Army for winning the international military drill competition for the third time. Khan also commended the Pakistan Army's highest standards of professionalism and excellence.

Every year, the military teams from around the world including Canada, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, and Pakistan participate in the contest.

The drill is done at a standard pace of 120 beats per minute with a 30-inch step and marching in slow time with the stick at 65 paces per minute, and transferring the stick from hand to hand while doing drill movements.

Uniformity in the use of the stick and by the attainment of a high steadiness and cohesion among instructors was the reason drill occurred.

Judges of the competition rank overall performance, any wrong commands or movements, or if the kit is less than immaculate, will result in the deduction of points.
