Abrar Al-Fahad’s gold-medal winning performance was the highlight for the Kuwaiti side, he underlined, as she went on to clinch first place in the 76-kilogram category in the women’s competition.

Youngster Fahad Al-Otaibi’s trio of bronze medals was also cited as among the standout Kuwaiti performances, while the official went on to hail the Kuwaiti success in the dual competitions.
