DOHA: The shooting and archery event organised by Qatar Shooting & Archery Association during the Darb Al Saai festival enhances Qatari identity and revival of traditional sports.
The Chairman of the shooting and archery event Ahmed Al Kuwari said that the event intents to revive a traditional sport that plays a significant role in protecting people and hunting for food. He added that Qatari athletes excelled in this sport when it was part of the Olympic Games.
