Al Da'w category is when the falconer releases his falcon to cover a certain distance at the highest possible speed, flying towards a set target at a very low altitude, before returning to the falconer.
Al D'aw Committee head Hamad Saleh al-Massoud stressed that all the competitions saw amazing performances from well-trained falcons.
He pointed out that the difference in time between the winning falcons were often just fractions of a second.
