CON­QUER­ING NEW HEIGHTS

Qatar Today - - CITY LIFE -

Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Ab­dul­lah Al Thani, Reach Out to Asia’s Good­will Am­bas­sador, has suc­cess­fully climbed the world’s top seven sum­mits, be­com­ing the first Qatari to achieve this in­cred­i­ble feat.

Sheikh Mo­hammed reached the sum­mit of Alaska’s De­nali on 3rd June, where he proudly raised the Qatari flag. His 28day trip was ham­pered by ex­tremely bad weather con­di­tions that saw him ex­posed to storms and wind­speeds of 80 km per hour. “I am ex­tremely proud of hav­ing suc­cess­fully hoisted the Qatari flag on the tallest peaks of each of the world’s seven con­ti­nents. It is the cul­mi­na­tion of a tir­ing sched­ule of thou­sands of hours of train­ing and hard work. Like other ad­ven­tur­ers tak­ing on de­mand­ing chal­lenges, I have en­coun­tered sev­eral risks and dif­fi­cul­ties, but suc­cess in reach­ing these peaks has made all the ef­fort worth­while,” said Sheikh Mo­hammed.
