Dubai: Emirates has collaborated with ESPN to produce ‘Flying the Flag’, a four-part documentary mini-series following the inspirational stories of four athletes in the UAE as they prepare to compete on the world stage.

The series focuses on the stories of athletes in four different sports: Zahra Lari, a UAE National figure skater vying to become the first Emirati athlete to compete in the Winter Olympic Games; Mohammed Al Balooshi, UAE National Motocross Champion; Chirag Suri, professional Indian cricket player representing the UAE Cricket team; and Shadia Bseiso, the first Arab female wrestler from the Middle East to sign a contract with the WWE.

Each story brings to life the untold journeys of each sports star, as they endure the physically and emotionally demanding battles that test their grit and determination to find success.

The series, produced by ESPN and Nomad Productions, will run in the UAE on Emirates’ and ESPN’s digital and social media channels.
