?The Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) yesterday (Sunday, Nov. 27) organised a press conference, where Supreme Council for Youth and Sports deputy general secretary and committee general secretary Abdulrahman Askar highlighted a number of subjects to representatives of sport media.
Held at the committee offices in Seef, the one-hour conference brought a number of issues such as the committee achievements since Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa was elected as president in 2009.
The conference started with a short film on Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa representative of His Majesty the King for Charity Works and Youth Affairs, Supreme Council for Youth and Sports Chairman, and Bahrain Olympic Committee President, commenting on recently winning the ANOC Merit Award in Doha.
Bahrain also won two additional awards at the same event – organized by the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) – and they were the best Breakthrough Award awarded to the Bahrain Olympic Committee, while long-distance runner Ruth Jebet claimed another award for winning Bahrain’s maiden gold medal in the history of the Olympics at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Askar noted the Breakthrough Award won by the BOC wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the committee authorities and staff members.
“We currently have 97 well-qualified and professional employees at the Bahrain Olympic Committee as well as over 400 athletes fully covered with health insurance to ensure maximum performance while representing Bahrain in regional, continental and international competitions,” said Askar.
“The Bahrain Olympic Committee has set up a number of key initiatives over the past seven years since 2009, which played a major part in what the committee has become now”.
Some of these initiatives include the Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Award for the best national sports federation, which was won by the Bahrain Athletics Association, headed by Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
BOC Sports Association executive director Abduljalil Asad demonstrated the criteria for the evaluation, which is based on four elements – technical, financial, administrative and achievements.
