PM Barzani Reiterates KRG Support for Athletes

ERBIL — Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on Thursday received a bodybuilding champion from Duhok province, who recently won the gold medal in an international bodybuilding contest in Beirut.

The prime minister said in a statement published on his official Facebook feed that he welcomed Haji Abdul Salam Rikani and congratulated him on his recent success in the Asian Bodybuilding Championship in the Lebanese capital.

During the meeting, the premier reaffirmed his government's continued support for its competitive athletes in the sports field in general, according to the statement.

During the 13 years of his life as a bodybuilder, Rekani has won several medals, in Iraq and other countries, presenting them to Peshmerga forces and their families to honor their sacrifices in the fight against terrorism.

The bodybuilder gave his latest gold medal to the son of a fallen Peshmerga soldier. Rekani, in the previous Asian Championship, came in third place, and offered the medal to a Peshmerga fighter from Shiladiza who had lost his legs in the fight against Islamic State (IS).
