ABDULLAH Al Eida, who won the Silver Sword at the Qatar Challenge Festival with Al Theeba, rated camel racing as the best sport.
“I enjoy racing at Shahaniya, find joy seeing the passion of all and make some money because it’s a good business model as well,” Al Eida told Doha Stadium Plus after receiving the sword from HE Sheikh Al Qaqa bin Hamad Al Thani.
Al Eida, a former Al Sailiya Sports Club president and keen football enthusiast, said he was engaged more in camel racing of late.
“I spend more time in camel racing because, for me, it’s the best sport. I’m happy to see its increasing popularity and I’m sure the efforts taken by our leaders will bring more youngsters to the track,” added Al Eida.
