The spotlight descended upon R.E.A.L Schools, Shah Alam Campus last December when a TV crew from the Astro Supersport channel visited the campus to shoot a segment of its popular Wonda Football Countdown show.
Two students from the campus’ R.E.A.L International School (RIS), Azfar Ezzat See and Miytesh Subbiah, were interviewed by Wonda Football Countdown presenter Patrick Kinghorn as part of the show’s ‘Football Whizzkids’ competition, which was aired on Astro Supersport 3 on Friday, December 2 at 9pm.
The competition required the two ardent football fans to answer a range of questions on their favourite football teams in as quick a time as possible. They performed extremely well, answering all their questions correctly and completing them just one second short of the leading time, held by a team from another international school.
Currently, the RIS team is holding a highly respectable second place on the overall points leaderboard. We wish them all the best for the rest of the competition.
In addition to Football Whizzkids, a number of other R.E.A.L students were also asked of their ‘predictions’ on the big English Premier League game that was being played that particular weekend, Manchester City versus Chelsea. They were then featured on the preview show during Astro’s coverage of the big match, which ended 1-3 in favour of Chelsea.
