Yemen is not a very sport-minded nation. Soccer is played by Yemeni kids in the alleys and streets. There are hardly any athletic grounds or gymnasiums. In 2005, Yemen’s national football team was suspended by FIFA for alleged corruption in the National Football Union.
Yemen does compete in the Asian, Arab, and Olympic Games. In the 2006 Asian Games a Yemeni wushu (Chinese martial arts) athlete won a bronze medal. The Yemeni gymnast Nashwan al-Harazi won several medals in the Arab and Asian games, including the first gold medal ever won by a Yemeni, at the Arab Games, in November 2007.
This is the equation."
