SUPREME Council for Youth and Sports chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee president Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, along with Supreme Council for Youth and Sports first deputy chairman and Bahrain Athletics Association president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, have both begun their preparations for their upcoming participation in an Ironman event.

Shaikh Nasser and Shaikh Khalid are keen on taking part in a highly competitive Ironman event coming up in the US this November.

They are both currently in Most in the Czech Republic with Bahrain's Royal Endurance Team. There, they continued their training for their Ironman participation, doing plenty of cycling, swimming and running in order to achieve peak physical fitness.

Shaikh Nasser and Shaikh Khalid recently competed in an Ironman event in Berlin, Germany, last June, and both put in fine performances.

They will be looking to build on that success soon in the US.
