UAE AF President & IAAF council member Ahmad Al Kamali said, "We have three years to go for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, and I urge private companies to come and join us in our bid to get an Olympic medal for the UAE. I admire the huge backing from our government, but we need the private sector to get involved and engaged as bringing home an Olympic medal is a task before all of us" (GULF NEWS, 7/9).
