General Director of the Public Authority for Sports (PAS) Sheikh Ahmad Mansour Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Thursday handed over awards of His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to the winning shooters Feheid Al-DeihanI and Abdullah Al-Taraqi.

PAS said in a statement that Sheikh Ahmad Mansour handed over the prizes, KD 50,000 to Deihani and KD 25,000 to Al-Taraqi, in addition to a financial award from His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, for the pair's unprecedented victories scored in Rio De Janeiro's international tournament.

Sheikh Al-Mansour said he was elated with this distinctive accomplishment "that has heartened every-one and re-placed Kuwait On the international sports map." Al-Deihani, on Wednesday, won the gold medal in the double-trap competition, while his fellow citizen, Al-TarAqi, grabbed the bronze medal in the skeet.
