You know what makes Jubilee Games special?

 

It is people like Adnan …

 

– Qayl Maherali, while interviewing Adnan, his younger brother, Riyaan’s Jubilee Games hero.

 

Maherali brothers, Riyaan (8 years old) and Qayl (12 years old) went to Jubilee Games in Dubai with a mission – to connect with the global Jamat and get to know their brothers and sisters from around the Ismaili world. They met athletes, family, friends, volunteers and spectators from several countries. New friendships were made and old friendships were strengthened.

Their experience has been transformational and they share one of their profound memories here.

Learn how one athlete’s interaction with 8 years old, Riyaan develops into an amazing relationship. Discover how Riyaan meets his hero Adnan Dahlvani, complete story on Simerg – Riyaan Maherali: My Ismaili Jubilee Games Hero – Adnan Dahlvani of Team USA Blue.
