Kuwaiti referees wish to achieve Int'l refereeing badges through Asian Championship

AMMAN, Sept 22 (KUNA) - Kuwait's handball referees Dalal Al-Naseem and Maali Al-Enezi wish to achieve the international refereeing badges through the 18th Asian Women's Championship, held in Jordan, with the participation of 11 teams, including the Kuwaiti team.
On the sidelines of the Asian Championship, Al-Enezi told KUNA Wednesday that the chance for her and her colleague Al-Naseem to obtain the international badge is greater after this official participation.
She pointed out that the current tournament includes only three women's referees from Kuwait and Iran.
In turn, Al-Naseem affirmed that she participated in various competitions in the GCC and on the Arab level.
Al-Naseem and Al-Enezi are the first women from the GCC to get the continental refereeing badges.
The Jordanian capital, Amman, host the 18th Asian Women's Handball Championship from 15-25 September, with the participation of 11 teams divided into two groups, from which the top five places will qualify for the World Cup in Spain next December. (end) mjb.aa
