DUBAI ? Shaikh Hazza bin Sultan Al Nahyan won the world endurance championship crown for the UAE after a little-known French rider turned the world?s premier race into a Grand National steeple chase finish-like atmosphere here at the Dubai International Endurance City yesterday.

Barbara Lissarague, 38, turned the heat on in the final 19 kilometres of the race to claim silver and prevent the Emirates from a medal sweep in the 10th FEI Endurance World Championship.

General Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, took the bronze on Nashmi and Shaikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan finished fourth astride Mindari Aenzac.
