KUWAIT: China reclaimed its first place on top of the medals list of the 13th Asian Shooting Championship at the end of the sixth day championship which witnessed fierce battles with India and South Korea in the rifle and pistol events, while Lebanon’s Ray Basil was outstanding and claimed the women’s skeet silver medal.
Kuwait and Arab Shooting Federations Obaid Al-Qsaimi said the 13th Asian Championship is approaching its end, with an unprecedented success be it organizational or in competition, adding everything came out ideal since the start, and hope things end as they started.
Al-Osaimi considered the praise received by the Organizing Committee is a clear indication on the success in getting the championship to the sought level, especially that all committees members exerted all efforts to remove all obstacles in front of shooters, their coaches and officials, so that all concentrate on action.
Al-Osaimi said the ASC confirmed their unlimited backing to Kuwait in its case with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) or International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF), adding that the Asian Community’s unity is obvious, and there will not be any deviation from this path under any circumstances.
He said the shooting federation will continue its work to restore the rights of the shooters who participated in the championship and qualified for Brazil 2016 Olympics. He said we will file court cases against the ISSF and IOC and will continue with the support of the ASC.
