September 11, 20198

?Bahrain’s national handball team today (September 22) will look to finish on top in Group ‘A’ when they take on Saudi Arabia in the concluding group stages match, part of the ongoing 17th Asian Games being held in Incheon, in South Korea.
After their resounding 57-14 win over the group’s other side Mongolia on the competition’s opening day on Saturday, the Bahrainis hope they can maintain their superb form today and register a second successive win ahead of the eight-team second round, which will also be another double group round robin battle.
This game today, set to tip off at 6am (Bahrain time), will also be a deciding game for the Saudis who eased past Mongolia 51-12 yesterday to secure their berth in the competition’s final eight.
In the second round, the top eight teams from the first round will be divided into two groups of four nations, with each group winners and runners-up reaching the semi-finals knock-out stage.
In other groups, Iran and Kuwait both qualified for the second round from Group ‘A’ after winning their opening matches against Hong Kong.
Qatar and China are presently topping Group ‘C’ with two points from respective victories over the UAE and Oman, while Korea and Taiwan were ensured berths in the second round with both sides winning all their two matches against Japan and India. 
Bahrain is being coached by Algerian tactician Salah Bouchekriou, who carried out the team’s concluding training session yesterday ahead of today’s crucial game.
Bouchekriou will be banking on some of Bahrain’s most prominent handball players, such as Mahmood Abdulqader, who scored a game high eight points against Mongolia.
Other key players for Bahrain include Hussain Al Sayyad, Jaffer Abdulqader, Mahdi Madan, Sadeq Ali and goalkeeper Mohammed Abdulhussasin.
Meanwhile, Bahrain’s national shooting team member Majed Juma could finish in 27th place from a field of 58 shooters, scoring 570 points out of 600 in the men’s 10m air pistol.
Shooting action continues today with Bahrain’s Lubna Abdulaziz competing in the women’s 25m pistol event, while Lulua Yousef and Aseel Abdulghaffar will be take part in the women’s 10m air rifle contests. Both competitions are set for 3am start (Bahrain time).
Elsewhere, Bahrain Olympic Committee general secretary Abdulrahman Askar, committee board member Shaikh Ali bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, and committee technical affairs manager Lounes Madene attended the Olympic Council of Asia Partnership Summit held at the Songdo Convensia – an opportunity for National Olympic Committees and Asian sports federations to expand their network of contacts and follow the trends of modern-day sports sponsorship and marketing.
OCA President, Shaikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, urged the delegates to make the most of the expertise and knowledge of the presenters from a wide range of global sports sponsors.
Shaikh Ahmad said that, in his role as President of OCA and also of the Association of National Olympic Committees, he was well aware that NOCs needed more finance, and this summit should provide them with the experience and education to make new partnerships.
He added that the summit was coming at a particularly exciting time for Asia, with the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, Korea, in 2018, the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. The 2022 Winter Olympics could also be in Asia, with Almaty, Kazakhstan, and Beijing, China, two of the three candidate cities.
