KIB spon­sors Kuwait Na­tional Cy­cling team

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

As part of the Bank’s mis­sion to sup­port Kuwaiti cham­pi­ons and ath­letes, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Bank (KIB) of­fered its exclusive spon­sor­ship to the Kuwait Na­tional Cy­cling Team, who re­cently com­peted in the Tour Gulf 9 Cy­cling Cham­pi­onship which took place in Bahrain and Saudi Ara­bia.

Fea­tur­ing an elite group of pro­fes­sional cy­clers, the Kuwaiti cham­pi­ons gave a tremen­dously solid per­for­mance through­out the dif­fer­ent legs of the com­pe­ti­tion. One of the big­gest stand­outs of the tour­na­ment proved to be Kuwaiti cy­clist Said Ja­far Ali, who re­ceived the Fighter Jersey (also known as the Red Jersey) in recog­ni­tion of his out­stand­ing per­for­mance and fierce com­pet­i­tive spirit, as he went up against some of the big­gest names in cy­cling in the GCC. Speak­ing about the spon­sor­ship, Nawaf Na­jia, Man­ager of the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Unit at the Bank, said: “KIB has al­ways been an ar­dent sup­porter of Kuwaiti ath­letes and cham­pi­ons, and we are es­pe­cially proud of our spon­sor­ship of the Na­tional Cy­cling Team. We have al­ways be­lieved that our na­tional cham­pi­ons are ca­pa­ble of achiev­ing great vic­to­ries on a re­gional and even in­ter­na­tional level, through their pas­sion­ate ded­i­ca­tion and so­phis­ti­cated sports­man­ship. These tal­ented young stars are play­ing a very im­por­tant role in pro­pel­ling Kuwait to the fore­front of many dif­fer­ent sports, bring­ing much de­served in­ter­na­tional glory to them­selves and their coun­try.”

Na­jia con­cluded by say­ing: “KIB is keen on spon­sor­ing lo­cal sport­ing ini­tia­tives and sup­port­ing lo­cal ath­letes, as we believe that sports is a vi­tal cor­ner­stone of any de­vel­oped con­tem­po­rary so­ci­ety.”

On his part, Ab­dul­lah Al-Sham­mari, Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the Kuwait Cy­cling Fed­er­a­tion, said: “KIB’s em­brac­ing sup­port of the Kuwait Na­tional Cy­cling Team was truly a key com­po­nent driv­ing the team’s strong per­for­mance, en­abling our ath­letes to achieve ex­cel­lent re­sults in Tour Gulf 9. We are very grate­ful for the Bank’s on­go­ing ef­forts to sup­port the ath­letes of Kuwait, help­ing Kuwait’s name to shine across many dif­fer­ent fields of sports.”
