The sharpshooting showdown continued on the third round of the UAE SWAT Challenge on Tuesday, February 11, as teams competed in the action-packed 'officer rescue' event held in Dubai.
This time, they had to fire at several small targets from a distance and conquer high barriers. Their stamina and agility were put to test again as they had to run as fast as they could after toppling their targets.
They also had to open a heavy metal door and take a zipline to the finish line.
All SWAT teams showed exemplary skills, but the first place was clinched by the Russian team Vityaz, which finished the challenge in two minutes and 53 seconds.
The Sharjah Police won second with three minutes and eight seconds, while the third prize went to SOBR team from Belarus.
During the event, Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police, toured the SWAT challenge's exhibition, which showcased the latest equipment, products and safety tools and weapons from participating countries.
Organised by the Ministry of Interior (MoI), in cooperation with the Dubai Police, the challenge is set to run until Thursday.
Teams from 26 countries will be competing in a total five categories. The tactical event was held on Sunday, with the Dubai Police Team A clinching the top spot. For the assault leg on Monday, the same Dubai team won first place.
