In this photo taken Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011, Hussain Jumaan, of Saudi Arabia, carries his country's flag after winning the 5,000-meter race at the Gulf Cooperation Council athletics competition held at the Bahrain National Stadium in Isa Town, Bahrain. The long-delayed GCC Games billed itself as a chance to shine the spotlight on the athletes in the Gulf, which is far more accustomed to playing host to international sporting stars. But the games are coming to a close in violence-wracked Bahrain after 12 days of near-empty stadiums and pro-reform activists angered by the government's efforts to throw a regional party while clashes continue between protesters and security forces.(AP Photo/Hasan Jamali) less
