BAHRAIN Olympic Committee General Secretary Shaikh Ahmed bin Hamad Al Khalifa expressed admiration for the Bahrain Weightlifting and Bodybuilding Federation (BBWF) plan to promote weightlifting and restore glory on national and international levels.

Shaikh Ahmed also stressed support of the committee and willingness to provide all requirements of this plan as part of its commitment to develop individual disciplines in general, and particularly at the Olympics.

The report revealed details of this plan and the keenness of the federation to implement it after signing one of the European trainers with vast coaching experience.

Shaikh Ahmed said that the organised administrative work pursued by the federation underlines the efficiency of its president in leading the federation along with other members of the board, and expressed pride for the honourable post and outstanding reputation of Shaikh Abdullah on the international level, and for his continued co-operation with the committee.

The General Secretary of the BOC said that the efforts of the BWBF have greatly contributed to the achievement of many weightlifting accomplishments on the GCC, Arab, Asian and global levels, and expressed confidence that the new development plan would be tremendously successful and adds to the previous achievements.

On his part, Shaikh Abdulla thanked the Olympic Committee for its significant role in the development of sports movements in the Kingdom of Bahrain and its strive to improve managerial performance within sports federations and develop the performance of Bahrain's athletes.

He pointed out the seriousness of the Board of Directors in the implementation of this plan to develop weightlifting similar to the federation's approach in bodybuilding, of which Bahrain has achieved many gains.
