KUWAIT: Secretary General of the Interior Committee that is running the affairs of boxing and weight lifting federations and Chairman of the two federations committee Talal Al-Jassar said the procedures of having each federation independent from the other are going ahead as one of the important conditions to lift the suspension by the International Olympic Committee or the International Weight Lifting Federation.

He said that the committee, in cooperation with Public Authority for Sport officials are working hard to complete the procedures as fast as possible, due to the instructions of Commerce and Industry Minister, State Minister for Youth Affairs Khalid Al-Roudhan who is following the matter, along with the interaction of Dr Humoud Fulaiteh on the matter.
Al-Jassar said the Federation and clubs participating in the weight lifting events appeal to PAS officials to build modern facilities as soon as possible to serve athletes and hold local competitions.

 

He said, the media coverage of the game was not of good standard as it should be although Kuwaiti athletes achieved outstanding results abroad.
He said the federation will continue its support to weight lifters in the clubs to maintain the levels and results they made previously.
