Meet Maitha Al Nyadi, 17, a Grade 12 pupil from Al Qadsiya School in Abu Dhabi, became the first Emirati female to win an international medal in judo when she bagged a bronze at the Cadets Asian Cup in Hong Kong in 2017.
The same year she recorded an eighth-placed finish at the Archery World Cup in Marrakech. The National Olympic Committee has shortlisted Maitha for the Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang from August 18 to September 2.
She also happens to be the country's undisputed muay thai champion.
We wish Maitha success in her education and extracurricular inspirations!
