Falcons named after global superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Usain Bolt

DUBAI, 8th February 2017: Falconers from Qatar ruled the roost in the GCC category over two days of exciting competition in the Falconry Championship Tilwah ‘Fakhr Al Ajyal' organized by the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center (HHC) in Dubai.

The championship is being held at the dedicated Fazza Championship for Falconry site in Ruwayyah off Emirates Road (Exit 55) will continue until 13th February.

Abdullah Al Marri's falcon ‘Oslo' won the Shaheen Wahish Farkh (GCC category) on Monday a time of 19.097 seconds. Talal Al Nuaimi's entry came second in a time of 19.137 seconds while Mohammed Ibrahim Al Musnad also from Qatar came third clocking 19.577 seconds.

In the Shaheeh Wahish Jernas (GCC category), Saleh Rashid Saleh's falcon won in a time of 19.446 seconds followed by Qatari Abdulaziz Mubarak Nasser Ali's entry in a time of 19.624 seconds. Bahraini owner Ali Saeed Kambash's falcon came third in a time of 19.849 seconds.

Earlier on Sunday, Qatar falconer Nasser Mohammed Al Nuaimi won the Hurr Wahish Farkh event with his falcon 'Dalmook' clocking 19.354 seconds while Saudi falconer Armizan bin Abdullah bin Al Dossari won the Hurr Wahish Jernas event with his falcon ‘Mushtaq' clocking 19.808 seconds.

Ms. Suad Ibrahim Darwish, Director of Championships at HHC, said the record number of 430 entries from the GCC countries over two days of competitions reflected the growing interest for the sport of falconry in the region.

'Their participation adds an international flavour to the tournament. Although there is a competitive edge, their participation in a spirit of fair play is something that should be admired. We are glad that the falconers from GCC countries have brought their best falcons which affirms their interest to preserve the heritage of the region and traditional sports such as falconry,' she said.

Stars
A feature in this championship was the close relationship the falconer has with his falcon by giving the bird popular names of sports stars, especially from football.
In the Shaheen Wahish Jernas (UAE Local) event, falconer Mohammed Rashid Al Ketbi participated with a bird named ‘Messi' along the lines of the global soccer star from Argentina Lionel Messi, because his favourite club is Barcelona.
Among the most prominent names of sports stars carried by falcons during the Fazza Championship for Falconry this season were ‘ACR 7' which is similar to Portugal and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Olympic superstar Usain Bolt.

Qatar
Qatar falconers swept the board in the Hurr Wahish Farkh event taking the first five places with Nasser Mohammed Al Nuaimi's falcon 'Dalmook' winning it in a time of 19.354 seconds flying at speeds of up to 74.40 kilometers per hour.
Mubarak Khalifa Al Asiri also from Qatar took second place with his falcon clocking 19.448 seconds.
Nasser Al Nuaimi also claimed third position with his entry clocking 19.594 seconds.
Bahrain's Hamad Nasser Al Nuaimi falcon came sixth in 20.592 seconds.
In the Hurr Wahish Jernas event, 'Mushtaq' owned by Saudi falconer Armizan bin Abdullah bin Al Dosari won it in a time of 19.808 seconds. Al Dosari also took second place with this entry clocking 20.247 seconds.
Third place went to Qatari Mohammed Ali Al Sulaiti with his entry clocking a time of 20.260 seconds.

Saudi
Armizan bin Abdullah bin Al Dosari said they were proud to participate in this prestigious championship.
'The support of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, for the sport of falconry is well known around the region. This is why we participated in all tournaments of Fazza Falconry Championships this season. We do not miss the opportunity to compete in this tournament, which has grown bigger every year,' he said.
