As long as I have ambition, maybe I can achieve something for my country.
To be able to live and train in Iraq under these circumstances you need to be brave.
Despite all these obstacles and bad security situation, I have the energy and the resolve to train, but my head is full of ideas and it distracts me, and I need to focus.
Life must continue, even with the security situation so bad, because I have ambitions. I love this sport too much.
Sports can unify the Iraqi people - no Sunnis, no Shiites, just sport for the country.
