The meet also witnessed national team swimmers taking part in all three events, but it was an unofficial race for them, since they are preparing for the GCC Championship to be held in Bahrain from May 8-10.

In the unofficial junior category (15-17 years), Issa al Adawi took the top honours in the 5km race. Abdurehman al Kulaibi finished runner-up and Sulaiman al Harrasi was third.


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.
