H.E. Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation has completed her first Olympic Distance Triathlon.
In an Instagram post, H.E. Sheikha Hind said "I am grateful for all the facilities I was able to train in; from the Olympic cycling track, to Aspire Academy, Oxygen Park, 5/6 Park, and the EC recreation center and stadium."
She also thanked her family saying, "The support I got from my family, friends, and coaches gave me the confidence to follow through. From my dad cheering me on after my swim sessions, my mum advising me on which bike to take, my husband’s words of support (and looking after the kids!) and my brother making sure my experience will forever be preserved. And of course, my cheerleaders, sisters, and the biggest motivation I had on that day. All of this made my experience that more special."
H.E. Sheikha Hind also gave special thanks to the Arab volunteers, "Special thanks to the Arab volunteers throughout the race who kept cheering me on whenever they saw the flag on my arm."
