Oman @ London Olympics
By staff - Fri Jul 27, 9:07 pm
Oman’s Shooting star Hatmi has been selected by the Oman Olympic Committee (OOC) to be the flag-bearer at the Games.
Oman were first represented at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles by a team of nine shooters and seven athletes.
The largest team to date, it included two sets of brothers.
Abdul Latif AL BULUSHI and Dadallah AL BULUSHI competed in the shooting events. Amor Masoud AL SHARJI competed in the 1500m and his younger brother Amor Masoud AL SHARJI ran the men’s 800m.
In 1988 Mohammed AL MALKY reached the final of the men’s 400m and placed eighth. Oman sent a team of four to Beijing in athletics, shooting and swimming. Buthayna Eid AL-YAQOUBI became the first woman from Oman to compete at the Games. She ran in the 100m.
We are yet to win an Olympic medal.
The other Omani athletes at the Games are Barakat al Harthy (100m sprint), Ahmed al Marjabi (400m) and Shinoona al Habsi (100m).
Following are our Olympic Heroes, Support them and for the Sultanate of Oman.
