His Excellency the Chairman of the General Sport Authority, Turki Al Shaikh, was definitely proud of the win

In a tweet shared via his official Twitter account on Saturday night, the Chairman of the General Sport Authority expressed his pride over the Kingdom’s many wins in the last year.

But he also specifically congratulated the Kingdom’s basketball team for “winning the Arab Cup”, referring to the players as heroes of Saudi Arabia- adding that the country deserved these achievements.

2018 has been a fruitful year for sports in Saudi

Not only did two successful WWE events take place in Riyadh and Jeddah but the country entered into the new year with a brim of excitement, such as when it opened this year’s World Cup vs Russia, the marathon wins, a Baloot championship- among others.

Mabrook to Saudi and let’s hope for more wins in the next year!
