KUWAIT: Kuwait delegation to the Kyrgyzstan International Archery Championship headed by President of Arab and Kuwait Shooting Federations President Eng. Duaij Al-Otaibi returned home Sunday evening. Kuwait’s team of archers Abdallah Taha, Bader Al-Mutairi and Faisal Al-Sindi won the Team’s gold medal, while Sindi won the bronze individuals medal.
Eng. Al-Otaibi said for Kuwait winning two medals in the Kyrgyz tournament is an important achievement as the first at the international level in this sport. He asked Public Authority for Sport (PAS) to give more support for archery to help archers achieve more results, as the case with the rifle and shotgun.
Meanwhile KSE and Arab Shooting Federations Secretary Federations Obaid Al-Osaimi said the win reflects the progress Kuwait archers have made after winning local and regional tournaments, although the sport was introduced recently.
He said the board of directors is keen on supporting shooters of both genders in order to represent Kuwait at their best in all arenas.
