"That’s why we have to maintain the same track so we will have generations of champions in different fields,” Sheikh Hamdan said.
He added: “UAE youth are able to continuously enhance their skills and take the lead in various events, where future leadership is in the hand of youth, and the duty of those with the right experience today is to prepare a highly skilled generation and Inspire them the spirit of competitiveness so they become committed to maintain first place."
