HH Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports, President of the General Sports Authority and President of Bahrain Olympic Committee has honored Bahraini athlete Maryam Jamal with the gold medal of the 2012 London Olympics after she has been promoted from third to first place. 

This came in a special ceremony held on this occasion at Al Wadi Palace on Saturday

Maryam finished third in the 1500m race, but recent tests discovered that the gold medal winner and the runner-up in the same competition were doped. 

The event began with playing the Olympic anthem which is one of the Olympic symbols, while other procedures followed to honour Olympic winners were followed as per the International Olympic Committee's guidelines. 

He added that winning this gold medal represents great value for the Kingdom of Bahrain, "We are proud of the first medal won by Maryam in the history of Bahrain, becoming the first GCC athlete to bag an Olympic medal. Thanks to her accomplishment we doubled our efforts and this culminates our endeavors."
