Celebrating Bahrain Sports Day

On February 12, volunteers from the American Embassy and the United States Navy participated in the activities of the Bahrain Sports Day at the Sports City.  The embassy set up a booth and volunteers from the US Embassy and US Navy engaged with the public, and particularly kids, in playing American football and learning how to throw the ball.  Participants all received giveaways.  U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) Aimee Cutrona attended some of the activities of the Bahrain Sports Day and commented: “Sports are a fantastic way for kids to learn about health and fitness, fair play, and teamwork, and the American volunteers were thrilled to share Bahrain Sports Day with the Bahraini kids!”
