Meanwhile, the Professional category for male and female Saluki 1,000 meter qualifying race will be held on 1 February with 6 matches. 


Strong competition

“We have also witnessed an increased turnout of young participants.  We really focus on motivating the young generation to participate in various heritage sports and we provide all the necessary support to reach their dreams,” she added.

“The improved level of managing the championship and the professional level of the Saluki trainers and competitors have contributed to the popularity of the sport. We look forward to hosting an exceptional edition with the finals to be held soon”, Suad concluded.
