Muscat: Taha bin Sulaiman al Kashari, Chairman of Oman Swimming Association (OSA) and Chairman of the Arab Swimming Federation(ASF), said that OSA sought to transfer the online qualification experience to the Arab federations after the remarkable success of the virtual lectures that were held in the Sultanate.
In a statement, Al Kashari added that the experience was a great success and much welcomed by the participating trainers in the Sultanate, whether members of or affiliated with OSA, the Ministry of Sports Affairs or academies and private schools as well as lecturers from inside and outside the Sultanate.
In his statement, Al Kashari pointed out to the expansion of the qualification from the local to the Arab framework and the encouragement of more than 13 Arab national federations to participate in these courses that have been organized to take place throughout the current month.
