Qatar’s 400m hurdles champion Abdulrahman Samba has said the spread of coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for athletes to train in the last three months.
Samba was speaking at the “Live with Al Adaam” programme, through Qatar Olympic Committee’s Instagram account. The 2019 World Championship bronze medallist said that with the gradual lifting of restrictions, he has returned to the exercises as he prepares for the upcoming championships. On the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, Samba said that the delay was good for him as he is still recovering from injury.
The Qatari sprinter said that he would not forget the moment he received congratulations from HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad al-Thani, President of the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) at the Khalifa International Stadium, after receiving the bronze medal at the World Athletics Championships held in Doha.
Talking about World High Jump champion Mutaz Barshim, Samba said he was inspiration for him and other athletes all over the world.
Samba praised Barshim’s patience and professionalism and said he has learned a lot from his fellow Qatari athlete.
