The National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) recently supported the Bahrain Paralympic Team participating at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Para Games. The 4th edition of the Asian Games were initially scheduled to take place last year, but were postponed and held from 22nd to 28th October 2023 in Hangzhou, China.
The sponsorship was in partnership with the Bahrain Paralympic Committee, which works to stimulate social transformation in the Kingdom and empower individuals with impairments to participate in sports at all levels. The Bahraini athletes competed in a range of Para sports including discus throw, taekwondo, 100m and 400m races, shot put games and more, alongside 3000 participants from around the Asian continent.
NBB is committed to supporting initiatives that promote inclusivity in sports and enable local talented athletes to represent the Kingdom in prominent international events.
