(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Marwan al Jabri, who is part of Oman Sail's Youth Programme, swept to a victory in one of the final races in the silver fleet to take the overall third place at the 2014 International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA) Asian Championships, held from March 28-April 6 in Bahrain.

Jabri, along with Zakariya al Wahaibi, posted a string of top-ten finishes in the silver fleet.

In the gold fleet, Laith al Mahrouqi, taking part in his first international event, got off to a strong start to finish his opening race in tenth place. A set of consistent results placed him in the top league in the gold fleet after the qualifying stages, alongside teammate Salim al Alawi.

It was the first time that Oman participated in the IODA Asian Championships. Singapore dominated the proceedings to clinch the overall title.

Oman's youth coach Abdulaziz al Shidi said, ''There is obviously a long way to go to achieve our goal, which is to be at the top. But to have three of our sailors in the top 50 per cent of the fleet shows we are on the right track. Overall, the Omani sailors' performances were encouraging.''

''The quartet of Jabri, Wahaibi, Mahrouqi and Alawi - gained good experience and improved a lot over the course of the competition. We have a lot more sailors in Oman who will benefit from their knowledge and experience. Within three or four years, we hope to produce medallists at these competitions and these sailors, in particular, should be among our top performers,'' said Shidi.<
