The organising committee of the Strongest Man at Home Championship has allocated 10 prizes worth $23,100 for the winners with the first place winner bagging $10,000 and the runner-up receiving $5,000.
The registration for the championship, which takes place on August 15, will conclude today.
The event, which aims to encourage Bahraini youth to practise sport and commit to measures in place to safeguard the society from the coronavirus pandemic, is part of initiatives by Supreme Council for Youth and Sports first deputy chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa to support youth and sports.
The championship will feature three contests, including pushups for 60 seconds.
Organising committee deputy chairman Mohammed Mashallah said that the committee is working tirelessly to make the championship a huge success.
“The organising committee will pick the best 10 entries for the finals,” he said.
“The participants will compete while at home, unlike in the previous events where competitors were contesting in a public place,” he added.
