I watched this YouTube video of enthusiastic reaction child got once in a lifetime opportunity to ride in a rally car and by his adorable reaction it’s likely a day he’ll never forget. I liked his cheer and remembered back my childhood hobby.
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia officially opened King Abdullah Sports City and AlJawhara Stadium. Saudi Aramco successfully constructed the Sports City within 390 days. The parking facility of the Sports City has 20,000 parking spaces, of which 311 are dedicated for people with special needs. Additionally, the stadium got 60,000 seats. The sporting amenities of AlJawhara include three outdoor football fields besides four other football fields, six tennis courts, and one big indoor stadium. There are also nine fixed and fifteen movable locations for television broadcast cameras to record events.[Source]
Absolutely this is a wonderful project built under professional plan and within a year. I’m really sad to see these projects are successfully placed in other countries, since Kuwait Jaber International Stadium kept for years without any care by the government. I need to see Kuwait Projects at least one of them to be proud of my country.
TAG Heuer, the world leader in prestigious and high-end chronographs, is proud to announce the signing of football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to a long-term partnership as a TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador.
Two-time Ballon d’Or winner, Real Madrid forward and Captain of the Portugal team for the coming World Cup in Brazil, Cristiano Ronaldo joins an illustrious roster of TAG Heuer sports stars and celebrities that includes film actors Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio, WTA tennis champion Maria Sharapova, Formula One World Champion Jenson Button, World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier and the entire crew of 2013 America’s Cup winner Oracle Team USA. Past members have included actors Brad Pitt and Uma Thurman, golfing great Tiger Woods, and the most legendary names in the history of Formula One, from Ayrton Senna to Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.
TAG Heuer, Cristiano demands perfection and pushes himself harder than anyone in his domain. This is the first time we enter the world of football, and it’s a perfect fit to do that with Cristiano, opening a new trend and a new way to engage with our fans. Sports is part of our tradition because we share the same values: self motivation and discipline, pushing one’s limit, never giving up. We’ve been in the sports world since signing on as official chronograph of the 1920 Olympic Games. We started timing ski events in 1928, Formula One and regatta racing in the 1970s. Adding football alongside our longstanding link to motorsports, especially with its number 1 icon and most powerful player, is incredibly exciting.
Registrations are now open for RunQ8, the annual 10kilometer charity race to be held Saturday, November 2 at 9 am, starting and ending at Marina Crescent on the Gulf Road. RunQ8 2013 is organized by the Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (FSRI) and Agility, supporting health initiatives and raising health awareness. We encourage socially responsible engagement in our community to improve preventative healthcare, standards for treatment as well as equal access to medical care. Previously, RunQ8 successfully supported Eye Health and Road and Traffic Safety community-wide projects in Kuwait.
In its third year, RunQ8 is supporting Children’s Rehabilitation through the new FSRI Children’s Rehabilitation Clinic. Caring for a child with a physical and/or cognitive disability has significant emotional, physical and financial effects on the child and the family. Despite parents’ best intentions, they often are unable to provide the care needed to improve their child’s quality of life, reduce his/her physical pain and provide for rehabilitation. The heartbreaking reality is that the children who are the most vulnerable require the most extensive, complex and prolonged rehabilitative care, which is financially impossible for many families. RunQ8 believes that no child should be left behind due to lack of financial support or quality medical care. With FSRI’s pediatric program, we strive to meet the needs of families without resources. This year we will be raising funds through RunQ8 to ensure that FSRI can continue to provide free comprehensive rehabilitative care to those children in the greatest need who have limited resources.

Around 3.00pm I arrived to Kuwait International Fair main entrance and saw huge traffic in the entrance. So I tried to find a parking close to the event location. At that day, the weather is so sunny and hot. So I arrived to the guests entrance, I forget to bring my invitation car with me, so the entrance staff refused to let me in. After minutes, their were another lady holding a guests name and thanks god our blog name is listed.
I stayed standing around 20 minutes looking for a place to sit but it is so busy, hot and terrible to sit under this pressure. So I enforced myself to leave the event because first of all the place should be only for guests/VIP and everyone is entered, their should be extra places to sit, the organization of the event is not that good and the weather didn’t helped me much. So I had to leave back home.
Last year’s event Redbull Car Park Drift 2012 were much better. It is much organized and the event started at night were much helpful. If you need to find more about the event, check 7ajidude’s event coverage post.
Weeks ago, I posted about Sports Direct opening soon in Kuwait. Suddenly I saw Sports Direct two branches. The first one is located in Hawali, Tunis St. and it is officially open.
The largest sports store in United Kingdom Sports Direct will start opening new branches here in Kuwait. I knew their will be more than four branches opening soon. The first branch starts from Hawali and the second one in Shuwaikh. Sports Direct is my favorite sports store, they provide all sports items in one area with good prices. I wonder if Sports Direct in London could be actually the same here.
