Qatar In­sur­ance cel­e­brated Al Annabi’s vic­tory in the 2018 Asian Games with Qatar Hand­ball Fed­er­a­tion at an event held at the Sher­a­ton Grand Doha Re­sort and Con­ven­tion Ho­tel re­cently.

The vic­tory meant that Qatar suc­cess­fully de­fended their ti­tle they had first won at the 2014 Asian Games in In­cheon, South Korea.

Qatar de­fended their ti­tle by de­feat­ing Bahrain in the fi­nal of the tour­na­ment, with a dom­i­nant late dis­play, scor­ing seven goals in 10 min­utes of ex­tra-time to regis­ter a 32-27 win.

Al-Man­nai said: “Be­ing the lead­ing na­tional in­surer, QIC takes pride in ex­tend­ing its re­lent­less sup­port and good wishes to Qatar Hand­ball Fed­er­a­tion. In fact, we con­sider such ini­tia­tives as a way of demon­strat­ing our com­mit­ment to­wards cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and pro­mot­ing the in­cred­i­ble sport­ing tal­ent in Qatar.

“Un­der the wise lead­er­ship of His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad al-Thani and guid­ance of the Pres­i­dent of Qatar Olympic Com­mit­tee, HE Sheikh Joaan bin Ha­mad al-Thani, the team has made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to­wards achiev­ing Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030.”
