    An official announcement was made at Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa to announce the objectives, operational procedures and plan of action for this first of its kind team.

    Shaikh Ahmad said: “The team’s purpose is to develop and popularise shooting, raise a generation of skilled national shooters, and lead them to championship titles.”

    The history making Arab shooting ace thanked Shaikh Hamdan for his decision, and expressed gratitude for having the honour of being chosen to lead the team.

    He added: “Shaikh Hamdan’s directives, which entrusted me with the task of leading and preparing this team, is a dream that I have long pursued. I pledge to transfer my shooting experience, which I have accumulated over the years of practising this noble sport, to my fellow nationals.

    “To that end, we are set to develop an integrated action programme and hire elite expert international coaches to train and develop the skills of the team members.”

    Shaikh Ahmad continued: “This team bears a major national responsibility, for we will target UAE’s emerging sons to attract them in order to establish a solid foundation of skilled junior male and female shooters, and to add to the achievements made by former national shooters at international and Olympic events.”

    Selecting talented shooters aged 7 years and above will be a first of its kind here for young talented sportspersons in the discipline, Shaikh Ahmad said.
