Palestinian Paralympic team at Westminster

Hounslow-Ramallah Twinning Association joined MPs and dignitaries to welcome the Palestinian Paralympic team to Westminster on Monday 3rd September. It was an honour to meet the two athletes, Mohammed Fannouna and Khamis Zaqout.

Khamis Zaqout came fourth in his track and field event of shot put. Mohammed Fannouna is still competing and we wish him every success in the 200 metres and javelin.

Following on from the Palestinian Olympic team’s participation in the Olympic Games, both groups of players have overcome a great many obstacles in order to be able to compete at London 2012.

HRTA congratulates all team members and hopes to build on its links with the Ramallah-based Palestinian Olympic and Paralympic Committees to further the development of relations between our two communities.
