    Good response to Cross Island Championship

    Nasser Bin Hamad Foundation (NBF) in cooperation with Bahrain Road Runners (BRR) Committee will organise the Cross Island Championship on Friday next week under the patronage and participation of Supreme Council for Youth and Sport chairman, Bahrain Olympic Committee president and Royal Charity Organisation (RCO) chairman Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

    BRR committee head Tariq Algosaibi praised Shaikh Nasser for his constant support to the BRR in organising such sporting events, assuring that his participation in the championship will reflect positively on other participants of the race.

    The BRR is affiliated with the Bahrain Athletic Association, and Algosaibi said that the collaboration with NBF helps strengthen the popularity of athletics in the kingdom.

    He added that new talents are usually discovered in such championships.

    "The committee has completed its preparations and is all set for the championship," said Algosaibi. "We have received good interaction with the public, who we are targeting to attract to athletics."

    He continued: "The 17-kilometer race will require high stamina and fitness. A large number of local and resident runners are expected to participate in the championship."
