Adding to Qatar’s prestigious sporting accolades, Qatari shooter Aisha Al Suwaidi clinched the gold medal in the 10-meter air rifle competition at the Arab Shooting Championships yesterday.

The Arab Shooting Championships are currently underway in Egypt, Cairo.

The competitions bring together a large group of over thirty female athletes representing 12 teams.

Qatari shooter Al Suwaidi claimed the gold among eight top athletes in the competition. Al Zahra Shaaban and Hadeer Al Sayed from Egypt secured second and third place, respectively.

Following her accomplishment, Al Suwaidi expressed her delight at winning the top honor.

The competition was strong, particularly in the final round, she said, adding, "but I succeeded in achieving first place and gold."

Al Suwaidi gifted the medal to her coach, acknowledging his great efforts as part of her training at the Lusail Shooting Complex leading up to the championships.

A member of the National Teams Committee, Al Anoud Matar Al-Nuaimi congratulated Al Suwaidi and the Shooting Association. She said that Qatari archery always proves its competencies in all Arab, Asian and international forums.

Al Nuaimi praised the outstanding participation of the two shooters, Matara Al-Asiri (in eighth place) and promising Shahd Al Darwish (in sixth place). The two shooters gave an outstanding performance and a good future awaits them, she added.

Earlier, the Qatari shooting team secured a gold medal in the mixed skeet competition in the Arab championships.

The championship sees the participation of over 300 shooters representing as many as 15 Arab teams.
