In the unofficial youth category (13-14 years), Mohammed al Kulaibi won the race and was followed by Aiham al Ismaili and Imran al Habsi in second and third places, respectively.


H E Sheikh Saad al Saadi, the Minister of Sports Affairs, gave away the prizes to the winners and runners-up in the presence of Taha al Kishry, OSA chairman, and other board members.


Also, the national team was felicitated for its performance at the GCC meet last month.
