Great pics Ahmed. You and Marta look good together.
By the way, I don't know if you guys have heard of it, but Team New Zealand is doing so well in the America's Cup (sailing competition) this year.
The America's cup is the oldest active trophy in international sport and a big deal to NZers.
Looks like Team NZ is going to win it again, Team NZ won the America's cup twice before, first in 1995 (the boat was called Black Magic), then they defended it in 2000. It's held every 3 years these days.
Team NZ leads 7-1 against Oracle Team USA. First to 9 wins, each race is worth one point.
Team NZ already beat the Italian and Swiss teams quite handily to qualify to challenge the defending champion (Team USA0.
There's a reason why Auckland is called the City of Sails. We have three harbours too. Sailing is something NZ does well in.
The boat Team NZ is using this time is called New Zealand Aotearoa. Aotearoa is the Maori name for New Zealand.
