Saudi businessman Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal has gifted 38 cars and two SUVs to the players and members of the Saudi National Team for Para-Athlete with an intellectual disability at a meeting at his palace in Riyadh on Monday.
At the meeting, Prince Alwaleed, who is chairman of Kingdom Holding Company (KHC), stressed the need to support sports and the athletes as well as the development of clubs in Saudi Arabia and to encourage the young generation to hone its athletic skills and invest their time in useful activities.
The vehicles were awarded to the players, members and coaches, headed by Dr. Nasser Alsaleh, after the Saudi Arabian team overcame South Africa in the final of the 2014 INAS World Football Championships, winning 4-2.
The achievement means they are the first team to win the competition three times.
Concluding the event, HRH Prince Abdullah Bin Musaad, Head of the General Presidency of Youth Welfare, thanked Prince Alwaleed for his support and his constant encouragement to clubs and sport federations in Saudi Arabia.
The team also presented a trophy to Prince Alwaleed in recognition of his continued support of the sports and athletes.
