Dubai: The UAE’s youngest gymnastic champion Lamia Tariq Malallah Al Farsi has posted a viral video requesting everyone to stay safe, stay home, and stay fit. The video was considered as one of the cutest and heart-warming in recent times.
Lamia is eight years old but is one of the leading champions of the UAE in rhythmic gymnastics. The youngster, who now trains at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, has appealed to everyone to stay at home and take care of themselves.
