Last weekend, HRH Prince Gharios El Chemor was especially invited to participate on the largest sports event in the world, the Arnold Sports Festival with over 22,000 athletes from 80 nations. The prince was a VIP guest of Dr Robert Goldman, Schwarzenegger’s business associate, a member of the US President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition and also on the board of the Royal House of Ghassan, being the main representative at the United Nations headquarters in NY.
Usually, the event has over 200,000 spectators but due to the coronavírus threat, the government of Ohio has decided to allow only the athletes and VIP guests to attend.
