Prince Fahd bin Jalawi bin Abdul Aziz was recently appointed president of the West Asian Triathlon Federation (WATF).

The federation’s general assembly on Friday recommended the prince, who is vice president of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee (SAOC), president of the Saudi Triathlon Federation and chairman of the Saudi Camel Federation, to chair the organization.

Prince Fahd graduated from Riyadh Schools in 2003 and attended King Saud University to study for a bachelor’s degree in law. He obtained an MBA in international relations from the University of Wales in 2012 and, three years later, received an executive master’s degree in sports organization management from Universite Catholique de Louvain in Belgium.

Prince Fahd was the president’s adviser of international relations at the Saudi Sports Authority between 2015 and 2017. Between 2007 and 2014 he was a legal adviser and an international relations adviser at the Ministry of Sport, previously known as the General Presidency of Youth Welfare.

In November 2016 Prince Fahd became the president’s adviser of Olympic Committees and Federations at the Union of Arab National Olympic Committees, and a member of International Relations Commission at the union. He is also a member of the international relations committee at the Association of National Olympic Committees.

Following his WATF appointment Prince Fahd thanked the general assembly members for their confidence, saying that he would shoulder “this great responsibility” to better serve the triathlon in West Asia.
