Kuwait’s Ahmad Al-Mutairi came first Saturday in the men’s 100 m wheelchair track race, T33 category, of athletics competitions at the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships, currently held in London.
Al-Mutairi came in lead at record time of 17 seconds, coming ahead of his three British competitors who finished the race at 17.79 seconds.
Al-Mutairi’s win has, once again, hoisted Kuwait’s flag and played the national anthem at a major international sports event, Anwar Al-Mutawa, head of the Kuwaiti participating team, stated to KUNA.
Al-Mutawa dedicated the Kuwaiti athlete’s achievement to His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and all the Kuwaiti people. (KUNA)
