Where do you see the sport going in Dubai?
I know the Dubai Sport Council is actively organising the structure of sports in Dubai and they have a big vision to be able to provide sports for all. I think swimming is one of the most important sports as Dubai and the UAE is surrounded by water, which is why we need to take the precaution to learn water safety. I believe High Performance Swimming Club will continue to grow in all areas and I hope that one day we can achieve the goal of providing swimming lessons to everyone in Dubai and the UAE.
