Omani Athletics Federation President, Sheikh Salim al Omari, highlighted the importance of sports cooperation between the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

He emphasised that collaboration in various sports strengthens the strategic relationship between the two countries.

He stated that deepening sports ties is a priority. He cited shared goals, ongoing efforts, joint participation in events, and coordinated development strategies as key factors driving this focus.

"We continually seek opportunities to develop our nations' athletics programmes," he said. "By sharing best practices, we can elevate sports collaboration across the board. A development-focused vision is crucial for our ambitious plans to enhance athletes' skills and potential," he said.

Additionally, he acknowledged the progress made in athletics within both countries.

He also attributed this growth to dedicated efforts, ambitious plans for the future, and participation in regional, continental, and international competitions.

Furthemore, he highlighted the implementation of targeted programmes that build a strong foundation of athletes who can compete and represent their nations well.

"Last September, we hosted the ninth Arab Junior Championship," he noted.

"The UAE and other regional countries participated alongside Oman. In the coming days, our national team will compete in the Asian Youth Cup under 20, held in Dubai from 24th to 27th April. We regularly exchange ideas and consult with the UAE Athletics Federation, led by Major General Dr. Mohammed Al Murr. This collaboration ensures we address common issues and develop a shared vision that fuels athletics' growth in both our nations," he concluded.
