Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy President of Supreme Council for Youth and Sports (SCYS), President of General Sports Authority (GSA), and President of Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) have been instructed to organize the 2022 Strength Week under the hashtag #be_a_beast. This year’s event will feature four competitions. Which includes the second edition of the Strongest GCC Man, the fourth edition of the Strongest Bahraini Man, and the Weightlifting Championship and Physical Strength Championship, which have all been approved by His Highness. His Majesty The King has instructed that the 2022 Strength Week be held following the success of last year’s event. The 2021 edition was a tremendous success at the continental and international levels.
It demonstrates Bahrain’s commitment to supporting sports in line with the vision and instructions of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Shaikh Khalid said.”This confirms Bahrain’s leading position as an exceptional hub for major events and it fuels the Kingdom’s endeavors towards the sports industry and supports investments in this key field in line with the Kingdom’s vision 2030,” We are committed to continuing our support for sports in the GCC as part of our belief that it is important to truly contribute to the advancement of sports in the region and its affiliates.
This will be achieved by holding the second edition of the GCC Strongest Man “Heavyweight” Championship.”In his view, the first edition of the championship, which took place in 2021 during Strength Week, provided a valuable opportunity to meet athletes in the GCC region who are interested in this type of sport. This increases all-around exposure for the sport, encouraging the GCC to continue its support by establishing a second edition of the championship. The goals of these efforts are to raise the sport’s level and form GCC teams for participation in continental and international competitions.”We were keen that the 2022 Strength Week would witness the establishment of 3 local championships that support the Bahraini sport of weightlifting and physical strength,” His Highness said.
