Hearty congrats to the ladies who have made their country proud.. . They are real achievers to write new chapters on the books of women achievements. They are an inspiration to all women in Oman who wish to take up sports in their career. Also a huge round of applause to the families of these two girls for supporting and being with them throughout. RESPECT!!!.. Probably Times of Oman should encourage this by doing a full fledged interview of these ladies and their parents.. That would help inspire many..
