Other information
REMEMBERING A TEAMMATE
He won four medals at the 2017 World Championships in London, England, and gave them all to the children of Abdullah Hayayei, an Emirati Para athlete who died in a training accident several days before the start of the championships. "Abdullah was a very sociable person. He talked to everybody in the team and played cards and dominoes with us all. He is not just an athlete but also a friend of all of us. What you must also know is that, before the championships, Abdullah had renovated his house and he had Tokyo 2020 put on all of the windows. He wanted that to motivate him. Now I am going to go to Tokyo and represent Abdullah. If I win a medal, I will devote it to him." (thenational.ae, 08 Jan 2019; paralympic.org, 21 Jul 2017)
