Local teenage hero Ghanim al Muftah, who suffers from one of the world’s rarest disorders which impairs the development of the lower spine, is the subject of the final film in Doha 2015’s "My Incredible Story" series leading up to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championships.

Doha 2015 launched the "My Incredible Story" series to showcase the obstacles, challenges and journeys of inspirational individuals from around the world in order to raise awareness about Para-sport and people with a disability, helping to break down barriers and change perceptions.

The final film looks at the accomplishments of Al Muftah, who has Caudal Regression Syndrome, and his hopes of becoming a future Paralympian.

The 13-year-old has called on everyone to get their tickets to support the largest Para-sport event ever to come to the Middle East, which is scheduled to take place at Qatar Sports Club from October 21 to 31.

"The 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships will see 1,400 athletes compete in Doha," said Al Muftah in the film.

"It is an opportunity for us to compete and to show the world that disability does not mean surrender.

"Hosting the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha indicates how committed Qatar is to people with disabilities and it is a great sign of support for us."

Despite his disorder, Ghanim has set up his own charities and sports club, and has founded his own ice cream shop.

Earlier this year, he won a youth award at the Arab Social Media Summit in recognition of the popularity of his Instagram account, which he uses to tell his story to the world.

"Through my Instagram account, where I have almost one million followers, I want to say that everyone has a right to dream and has ambitions that they can achieve," said Al Muftah, who has been confirmed as a Youth Ambassador for the World Championships.

"Social media is a window to the world.

"It helps us get our message out there faster and we have to use it in a positive and useful way.

"I want people to understand that people with disabilities are capable of giving and are active in society."

Al Muftah's film was unveiled by Doha 2015 chief executive Ameer al-Mulla, who paid tribute to the youngster.

"Ghanim is an incredible young boy and he is the embodiment of hope, determination and giving," he said.

"He is just 13-years-old, yet he is already changing perceptions of disability in our country.

"He has achieved a huge amount in his young years and he is a fantastic role model for young Qataris.

"We are so pleased to have his support for the IPC Athletics World Championships."

The first four films focused on sprinters Terezinha Guilhermina of Brazil, Jarryd Wallace of the United States and Giusy Versace of Italy, as well as javelin and shot put thrower Thuraya al Zaabi, who made history at Beijing 2008 when she became the first female athlete to represent the United Arab Emirates in a Paralympic Games.
