FEI chief praises Royal Team

Bahrain Gulf Daily News
BAHRAIN'S Royal Endurance Team, led by Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, has been praised by International Equestrian Federation (FEI) endurance committee director Ian Williams for its recent successes in international competitions.

The Bahrainis last week clinched second place in the team category at the FEI European Endurance Championship in Portugal, and were also runners-up at the annual Compiegne Endurance Horseride Race in France in August.

In light of these achievements, Williams claimed that the team has a bright future in the sport. He added that their success is not a surprise because of the optimal care and attention given by Shaikh Nasser, who is the Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation president.

Meanwhile, the Bahrain Sports channel will broadcast a live interview with the team members tonight at 9.30pm. Viewers will have a chance to call in and personally ask questions to Shaikh Nasser and the other team members.
