The Kuwaiti athletics team has won the first gold medal in a tournament abroad. Jarrah Al-Fadhli, the rapporteur of the Kuwaiti athletics committee affiliated to the Kuwaiti Olympic Committee, said in a statement to KUNA, on Monday, that the team won the gold in the fifth Ras Al-Khaimah (UAE) championship.
This is a leap for the newly-born game in Kuwait, said Al-Fadhli, speaking after return of the team from Ras Al-Khaimah where the champion, Yousef Jumaa, came first in the 94-kg category. Jumaa was excellent in all the competitions of the championship, which concluded two days ago, he added. (KUNA)
