In a statement to SANA, Maso indicated that this result is the best for him since he started playing the game, and it is the first time that he competes with the best players in the world. It is also his first participation in the Olympics and the second for Syria after Omar Tayyara participated in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

In turn, Chairman of Triathlon Federation, Nasser al-Sayed noted that this race is one of the difficult races with the presence of the elite of the world champions in the game, pointing out that Maso was able to complete the race with his competitors despite the withdrawal of more than one player.

Maso participated in the Olympics at the invitation of the Triathlon Ranking and Tripartite Commission, after reaching 149th place in the world and 11th in Asia.
