A lot of incredible women from around the world competed at the recent Ironman 70.3 Middle East Championship in Bahrain. Among those women: Rana Alalawi.

A member of Bahraini telco Batelco's legal team, Alalawi placed third in Bahrain and the GCC in the Amateur category of the triathlon. Her strong showing means she'll be able to compete at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. The world championships are set to take place in Nice, France in September 2019.

To celebrate Alalawi's achievement, Batelco hosted a special event in mid-December to recognise her. Batelco human resources general manager Faisal Al Jalahma and Batelco head of corporate communications and marketing Shaikh Bader Al Khalifa received Alalawi to commend her and convey the congratulations of Batelco’s executive management. Furthermore, in recognition of Alalawi’s success they also assured her of Batelco’s sponsorship, to support her training in the lead-up to the world championship.

Bahrain marked Bahraini Women’s Day earlier this month. Batelco marked the occasion with a number of staff members participating in the celebration held to show appreciation for the employees’ invaluable contribution and efforts.
