Al Kharafiadded: “Zain considers the support of Kuwaiti sports and athletes a priority within our corporate sustainability strategies. Our support to Kuwaiti Champion Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq during the past 10 years has proven to be fruitful, resulting in this historic achievement”.

The company has endless confi- dence in the competencies of Kuwaiti athletes and their capabilities in excelling in different fields, on both regional and international levels. It is worth noting that Al Abdulrazzaq represented Kuwait throughout the past years in several local and international competitions, winning a number of prominent titles, which encouraged Zain to continue supporting him. Most recently, Al Abdulrazzaq competed against professionals from across the globe, and achieved the first place titles in Runabout GP1 and Ski Ladies categories in late 2016.
