Allianz Malaysia Berhad celebrated International Men’s Day with a competitive 3D archery tournament for its male employees on 29 November 2019. 

The competition which was held at City Camping Park, Cheras in the Bukit Sungai Puteh Forest Reserve attracted 26 employees who formed five teams. The aim of the game was to shoot at foam animals from 10m and 15m. The archers shot three arrows each earned five points for hitting the target and 10 points for hitting the Kill Zone. 

“This is our first International Men’s Day celebration. We wanted to make it a fun yet competitive affair by trying our hand at 3D Archery and enjoy the thrill of shooting arrows outdoors,” said Zakri Khir, Chief Executive Officer, Allianz Malaysia Berhad.

Leading the teams were Zakri, Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad Chief Executive Officer Joseph Gross, Allianz Malaysia Independent Non-Executive Director Y.A.M Tunku Zain Al-`Abidin Ibni Tuanku Muhriz, Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad Head of Risk Management Syed Zain Syed Noh and Allianz Life Acting Product Chief Officer Ooi Haw Yun.

“Not many realise that archery is a highly entertaining activity that forces you to have laser focus and good hand-eye coordination. It also tests your fitness levels. Sure it ended up being a great workout, but it was all worth it as we were able to share this experience with our fellow colleagues,” added Zakri. 
 
The team led by Syed Zain emerged champions with 635 points followed by Zakri’s team with 570 points (second place) and Haw Yun’s team with 550 points (third place).
