“Sport is the soul; that is how I call it. My disability never stopped me from being a sportswoman.
I found that javelin throwing and shot put are suitable for my case, although they are not easy sports.
My wish is to be ambassador of my country to the international events, to present the good image of the Emirati girl: smiling, successful, and loving.”
Thuraya Hamad AlZaabi - Javelin throw/ Shot put, Al Thiqah Club for Handicapped, Sharjah
