The tournament is in honor and named after the martyr Sheikh Fahad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah. According to the article in The Kuwait Times:
Attending on behalf of the Kuwaiti sports chief, Sheikh Mishal Talal Al-Fahad Al-Sabah told attendees at the opening ceremony that the accomplishment of having hosted the tournament for the fourth year in a row is one for “Kuwaiti and Arab gymnastics alike.”
“These competitions allow Arab gymnasts to prepare for larger international events, improving their technical abilities,” he said. Kuwait Gymnastics Federation Secretary, Saif Abu Adel, said in the opening speech that the competition would continue to honor the late Sheikh Fahad Al-Ahmad, who was known for his great contributions to the sports movement in Kuwait and Asia.
