?Bahrain’s Ali Dawani started his campaign on a low note in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, being held in Buenos Aires.
Dawani lost his opening round match in the men’s singles event to Netherland’s Jasper De Jong 0-2 at B.A Lawn Tennis. Sets results were 2-6, 1-6 in a 71-minute match.
The 17-year-old Bahraini will now take a one-day break before teaming up with Thasaporn Naklo of Thailand in the first round of the mixed doubles event, where they take on the tandem of Sada Nahimana of Burundi and South Africa’s Philip Barr Henning.
Meanwhile, short-distance pair of Ahmed Anan and Marwa Al Ajooz have stepped up their preparations for their respective athletic events starting later this week.
Anan will be competing in the men’s 400m heat, scheduled for Wednesday, while Marwa is to take part in the women’s 100m heat, also due to take place on the same day. The pair have been training with their national tactician Salim Nasser, a former short-distance athlete.
More than 4,000 athletes are lined up for the Games, including Bahrain’s four athletes that will compete in three different sports – athletics, weightlifting and tennis. Maryam Sharifa is the sole representative of Bahrain in the women’s 48-kg weightlifting championship.
