A dream experience that is still burning bright

Mubarak Salah swells with pride as he recounts his Rio experience.

The young employee from Dow Chemical who is with the Dubai Sports Council as a graduate of the Hamdan Bin Mohammad Programme for Sports Leadership Development, is fresh back from Brazil after being chosen as one five global torch bearers in the torch ceremony through the old Brazilian capital of San Salvador last month.

Salah was part of a global search and he was nominated to represent the Middle East region along with four other continental representatives hailing from Germany, Singapore, USA and Argentina.

"Being part of the torch ceremony is like being in a dream world. I was in Brazil for the 2014 Fifa World Cup, and now less than two years later, all I can say is that the country is ready to host the Olympic Games,” Salah told Gulf News.

"I can just imagine the feeling of being an athlete at an Olympic Games. I wish all our UAE athletes the very best of luck, and I hope they return home with medals,” he added. – Gulf News - http://gulfnews.com/sport/athletics/a-dream-experience-that-is-still-burning-bright-1.1867786
