The UAE team of cyclists clinched the gold medal and the Saudis bagged the silver.

The two races were held on Kuwait’s landmark Sheikh Jaber Bridge, early on Monday.

Meanwhile, President of Kuwait Olympic Committee Sheikh Fahad Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah said Kuwait gave sports a priority out of its belief in social and sports responsibility and in confirmation of its future strategy to work on the development of the Olympic movement under the guidance of HH the Amir and HH the Crown Prince.
