DAYS OF PALESTINE – Kuwait organized on Tuesday an award ceremony for young Kuwaiti tennis player Mohammed Al-Awadhi for refusing to face Israeli opponent.
The Kuwaitis for Jerusalem committee organized an award ceremony for young Kuwaiti tennis player Mohammed Al-Awadhi and some Kuwaiti writers for boycotting activities in which athletes and writers from the Zionist entity participated. The group is a joint committee from the Women’s Cultural and Social Society and the Society of Graduates.
The boycotts are against the normalization of ties with the Israeli entity, which is the position of the government of Kuwait. According to a representative of the committee and both societies, this issue is still important, even to young Kuwaitis.
“I want to thank all those who encouraged and supported me. Hopefully, I will rank first in upcoming competitions, and hope I will be as good as Rafael Nadal one day,” Mohammed Al-Awadhi said during the ceremony.
The 13-year-old Kuwaiti tennis player withdrew from the match against the Israeli entity’s player in the semifinals of the Ten-Pro Global Junior Tour for competitors under the age of 14 held in Dubai last month. This caused him to lose the chance to be the champion.
