FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD TO THE BOTTOM
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani who became the first Qatari to conquer Mount Everest last year, planted the first Qatari flag on the South Pole last month.
To commemorate Qatar National Day, the young ROTA Ambassador skied for two weeks to reach the South Pole and raise the country's flag there. He is quoted as saying in a statement, “I am extremely proud to be the first Qatari to raise the flag of Qatar on the South Pole. Very few people have been privileged to visit the South Pole. This milestone, I hope, will continue to inspire young people in Qatar as we celebrate our beloved National Day.”
