Dubai - UAE 17 March 2019: The UAE’s Hamda Al Hosani will have to make room for another medal in her cabinet after winning gold in the 200m final at Special Olympics World Games.

At Dubai Police Stadium today, the 30-year-old sprinter crossed the finish line in an impressive time of 32.14 seconds. Canada’s Eva Bell who crossed the line at 34.81 seconds closely followed her. 

There was more reason to celebrate for the UAE, with Hamda’s fellow Special Olympics UAE sprinter, Momena Shirdal, coming in third (36.42) during the same race and winning bronze.

The result comes as no surprise, with Hamda having dominated the track at various Special Olympic events. The Emirati sprinter, who is known for having more medals than Usain Bolt, has more than 15 medals to her name. 

Hamda, who will compete in the 100m later in the week, said: “It is a great feeling to win gold on home soil and in front of my home fans. I’m really enjoying the World Games so far. It has been really fun and the other competitors from around the world have spoken so positively about the competition, which is really good. I cannot wait to get on the track again this week.”
