FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP UAE 2017
Wednesday, December 6 to Saturday, December 16
In a country where jiu-jitsu is the combat sport of choice, Emirati teenager Noura Albloushi developed a passion for Muay Thai and is slowly making a name for herself in the UAE.
The 14-year-old picked up the sport when she was nine, and never looked back.
"I started when I was young, five years ago, my father pushed me and I got into it and loved it. Muay Thai helped me a lot in my life," she says in the video above (provided by Abu Dhabi Sports Council).
"People's reaction wasn't okay at first and because of that they thought that girls shouldn't do sports. I cheered myself so I could come here and show myself to the world and make people think that women can do sports also."
Albloushi is keen on changing gender stereotypes in the UAE. She got selected to join the Muay Thai national team, which has come on the back of the foundation of a UAE Muay Thai federation last April.
