The sports quiz that was first aired back in the 2000s and has a cult following even today is back in an all-new avatar. The 2022 edition will see 27 schools from 22 cities across India (65 percent from non-metro cities) competing for the coveted trophy. The quiz format will encompass three exciting rounds of sports quizzing, modeled around the Olympic motto – Citius, Altius and Fortius. Citius tests speed and accuracy, Altius assesses depth of knowledge and Fortius is an examination of mental strength and performance under pressure.
The quiz provides a great opportunity for the sport aficionados from various schools to put their knowledge to test against the best. The winning schools will be awarded a cash prize of Rs 1 crore for developing sporting infrastructure in their respective schools.
The finalists will also get a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit a sporting event of their choice. Other prizes include Apple Macbooks, medals and certificates as well as recognition in the student community.
Apart from testing the sporting knowledge of students from across the country, the USQ is also an endeavor to support grass-root level sports development.
