Abdulrahman al-Muftah, Executive Director of the Qatar School Sports Federation (QSSF) was re-elected to the executive committee of the International School Sport Federation (ISF).
In the elections that took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday, al-Muftah secured 73 votes to find a place in the committee. He was one of the 14 contestants to vie for six seats on offer.
This is al-Muftah’s second consecutive term after he was voted to the ISF committee in 2016. Back then he was elected after the ISF election held in Besancon, France. He has also served as the member of the executive office of the Arab Union for School Sports.
Al-Muftah expressed his happiness after his victory, pointing out that Qatar’s push to globalise school sports has been paying dividends.
“This is the result of the support of the Qatar Olympic Committee, the President of the federation, the Secretary and their untiring work. I am honoured to represent Qatar in the executive office of the International School Sport Federation. I will strive hard to draw strategic decisions that will serve school sports,” al-Muftah said.
Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) has shown a keen interest in school sports and has conducted School Olympics over the past few years, which has seen participants from number of schools in Qatar. QOC’s aim is to implement Qatar’s vision and plans to develop school sports on a global level.
The chairman and members of the Board of Directors of the Qatar Sports School Federation congratulated al-Muftah for this election.
