Almur Bin Huraiz is Crowned World Junior Jet Ski Champion  - النسخة العربية



Dubai Jet Ski Team Dedicates Win to

HH Sheikh Khalifa and HH Sheikh Mohammed



In a win that marks a significant achievement for the UAE in the international sporting world, Almur Bin Huraiz, the UAE National Jet Ski Champion was crowned the World Junior Jet Ski Champion at the World Finals held in Arizona, US from 4 -12 October.


The Dubai Jet Ski Team dedicated the win to His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Dedicating the award, he thanked them for the support they have extended to the UAE’s sports community.


A huge crowd welcomed Almur Bin Huraiz on his arrival at the Dubai International Airport after the win. The win is particularly significant as he is the first Arab to win the Jet Ski World Finals. Another Dubai Jet Ski Team member, Steven Dauliach, former professional world champion added to the team’s laurels when he became the runner up in the senior professional category.


Almur won the junior title scoring 60 points, beating his closest rivals, second-placed Quinten Bossche from Belgium (53 points) and third-placed Nacho Arwillas from Spain (48 points). Thanking God Almighty for the victory, Almur said that the win is the natural result of the intensive training that the team underwent in the past three months. He added that his participation in key tournaments during the summer helped him prepare for the World Finals.


The Dubai Jet Ski Team was supported by the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), which was the Main Sponsor and Al Mulla Investment Company, the Associate Sponsor. The team was led by Huraiz Bin Huraiz.


HE Dr Omar Bin Sulaiman, Governor of DIFC said: “We congratulate the Dubai Jet Ski Team on this outstanding victory. This achievement will give a great boost to the UAE’s global sporting profile. The Dubai International Financial Centre’s sponsorship and support of the Dubai Jet Ski Team is part of our commitment to encourage and help develop young talent in the UAE. We congratulate Almur on this exceptional achievement and wish him a bright future.”    


Saeed Hareb, Executive Director for Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) said: “It is a significant achievement for marine sports in the UAE. We owe this victory to the generous encouragement of HH Sheikh Mohammed who has offered tremendous support for the development of marine sports. His Highness’ support has enabled several sportspersons to take part and perform creditably in international sporting events. His personal interest in promoting sporting programmes has been instrumental in raising the performance of UAE sportspersons in international tournaments.”


Hailing Almur’s win, he said: “We always knew he had the tenacity and persistence that an international champion requires. In the past, we used to say that he is a world champion in the making. Now, thanks to God, he is a real world champion.”  The Dubai International Marine Club, he said, will continue providing the support that will help Almur to continue his career in sports and win more tournaments.


Huraiz Almur Bin Huraiz, Manager of the Dubai Jet Ski team, who is also Almur’s uncle, thanked His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for his patronage and support. “Words are not sufficient to describe the generous support that HH Sheikh Mohammed has extended to marine sports in the country.”


Huraiz further said, “The world championship has always been our goal and the club and its sportsmen have been working hard to achieve international recognition for the UAE. We are delighted that we have surmounted all challenges to emerge victorious. We offer our sincere appreciation and gratitude to all our sponsors, the Dubai International Financial Centre, Al Mulla Investment Company and Al Masoud Company for their moral, financial and technical support.”


He concluded by saying the win raises the bar for the Dubai Jet Ski Team. The team, he added, has worked out a long-term strategic plan for further raising the performance and enhancing the achievements of the team.


In addition to Almur’s win, Steven Dauliach’s achievement in coming second in the senior professional category also raises the profile of the Dubai Jet Ski Team making it one of the most prominent international jet ski teams. Dauliach is also Almur’s coach.
