Qatari archers arrived Wednesday in Doha after they finished second in the overall ranking of the 12th Arab Archery Championship in Tunisia's Djerba with 20 colored medals (5 gold and 15 bronze).

They were welcomed at Hamad International Airport by Director of Al Ramii Sport Club Ahmed Al Kuwari.

Assistant Secretary of the Qatar Shooting and Bow and Arrow Association (QSAA) and Head of the Bow and Arrow Authority, Jassim Shaheen Al Sulaiti, expressed in a press statement his great happiness with what the archers achieved in the tournament, which included outstanding archers from many Arab countries.
