Date : 29 Aug 2019

Manama, Bahrain, August 29, 2019: A course for fencing coaches is underway in Bahrain organised by the Bahrain Olympic Committee’s Bahrain Olympic Academy in cooperation with Olympic Solidarity, with 27 coaches taking part.

The course is being held at the Bahrain Fencing Association premises, where a delegation from the academy attended part of the ongoing sessions aimed at qualifying and preparing national coaches.

Academy director Dr Nabeel Taha, joined by training and development head Mahmood Yateem and Olympic Solidarity manager Maryam Mardana, were briefed by Italian instructor Matto Scamarda on the programme of the course, which will come to a close on September 4.

Dr Taha asserted the BOC’s keenness to provide all training opportunities through the academy, and through Olympic Solidarity programmes, to improve the level of different sports.

He noted that fencing was one of the Olympic sports that should receive significant support from the academy in an attempt to develop the sport at the international level.
