Special Olympics World Games Ambassador and Egyptian professional triathlete and adventurer, Omar Nour, gave athletes from the Special Olympics UAE triathlon team a special gift to help them run their way to success at the World Games this March.
Meeting Micah and Jonah Hambleton, who will be representing the UAE in the triathlon event, Omar Nour donated 11 pairs of running shoes to the TriGoals UAE team.
The athletes also received some top tips from the professional triathlete, who scored Egypt’s first ever ITU Olympic triathlon points after turning pro in 2010.
The triathlon is the first event which athletes will take part in at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, happening on 8 March at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
