EMIRATI FIGURE SKATER TO MAKE HISTORY AT EUROPEAN CUP IN ITALY
The name Zahra Lari may not ring a bell offhand, but what she has achieved has surely ensured her a place in the annals of UAE sporting history. The 17-year-old Emirati became the first ever figure skater from the UAE to compete in an international competition when she took part in the European Cup in Canazei, Italy in 2012. More than 50 countries took part in the European Cup but Zahra's participation was understandably the talk of the town.
Zahra trains six days a week twice a day, before school and after. Before school she gets up at 4.30am and does off-ice exercise followed by on-ice training, running through routines and practicing.
