Dubai, UAE, May 22, 2018:   Sheikh Juma Dalmook Al Maktoum, winner of the Double Trap silver medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, tested his physical readiness for the 2018 Asian Games on Monday night by taking part in the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament's 10km Run.

With His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, greeting the participants at the start and cheering them through the race from an open-top jeep, more than 1,500 runners took part in the 5km and 10km Run, crossing the finish line in the wee hours at the Nad Al Sheba Complex.

Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum and Sheikh Hamad Dalmook Al Maktoum – both brothers of Sheikh Juma –also took part in the race, along with Sheikh Rashid bin Ammar Al Nuaimi, Sheikh Humaid bin Ammar Al Nuaimi and Sheikh Abdullah Bin Majid Al Nuaimi.

“First, I wish to thank Sheikh Hamdan for his great initiative, which encouraged us to take this opportunity,” said Sheikh Juma, who is preparing for the 18th Asian Games, which will be held in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta and Palembang from August 18 to September 2.

“We are really happy to complete the race despite the heat. Shooting is not just about precision and hitting targets – you also need to be very fit physically and be sharp mentally. So this was a good way of testing our physical condition.

“I am taking part in the Asian Games and soon we will launch an intensive preparatory programme to make sure I am fully ready once the Games start in August. We will launch our preparations next week and I am considering if I should take part in the Grand Prix in Austria or continue with our preparations at home. We will also organise an outside camp before the start of the Asian Games.

“It's hard to predict what might happen in shooting. We're preparing ourselves, but others are getting ready too. We also do not know what conditions we're going to shoot in. But what we can promise is that we will do everything we can to keep our flag flying high at the Asian Games.”
