Commercial Bank celebrates Sport Day with CB Olympics

Commercial Bank (CB) yesterday organised its ‘CB Olympics Challenge’ for the second consecutive year to celebrate the National Sports Day for its employees.

The event took place at the CB House of Fitness, the bank’s on-site fully-equipped mixed gym. It comprises a ladies-only area and offers employees high-quality facilities led by professional staff who run fitness classes such as Yoga, Zumba, Aerobics and Reformer Pilates.

‘CB Olympics Challenge’ required employees to form eight teams and compete against each other in rounds of athletic and dynamic activities and challenges.

The challenge aimed to encourage staff to become physically active, and lead a healthy lifestyle as part of Qatar’s National Sports Day.


Sheikh Jassim Saud Al Thani, Senior AGM and Chief Human Capital Officer at Commercial Bank, said: “A healthy lifestyle unlocks great energy, in Commercial Bank we realise the importance of sports in the social and economic development of Qatar. Through our many yearly organised and sponsored activities, we continue to play an active role in the community by encouraging staff as well as customers to adopt a healthy active lifestyle.”

The challenge was attended by a significant number of staff and their families, filling the space with energy, cheering and stamina.

Commercial Bank’s EGM and Chief Marketing Officer, Hussein Ali Al Abdulla added: “As we all know, Qatar National Vision 2030 has sports activities at the heart of its goals. Given that, not only do we organise such events and challenges on this special day, but we also sponsor international tournaments such as Qatar Masters and partake in several local activities. On the bank’s level, CB Olympics Challenge and other similar events bring our colleagues together and enhances team spirit, thus reconfirming our one-team-one-bank culture.”
