Oman is to open up its Olympic stadium to all its citizens who are injured in the country’s three-week Games, after it was blocked by authorities.
Oman is in the final week of preparations for the Games, which start on February 8.
The country’s sports minister was expected to hold talks on Wednesday about opening the stadium for visitors.
Omar Ali Minai said the ministry had decided to open the venue for citizens with injury.
“Our decision is based on the recommendation of the medical team and we hope that our athletes will be able to participate in the games as normal, he said in a statement.
Omen will host a special Olympics competition on February 1, in the form of an indoor and outdoor event.
The Games will be held in two phases, with the indoor competition being the most important event.
Olympic officials have decided to invite athletes from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, who will compete in the indoor events.
