2016 Olympics and Racing Camels

I was trying to evaluate the possibilities of Dubai hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics when I came across the UAE Olympic committee website according to which, the Athens 2004 games is an upcoming event, cites '1 participant only' as an international level sporting achievement and using underage boys for camel races is a heritage sport.

given the age (judging from the appearance of a tiny image on the web) of the photograph I'd say its unlikely its anything but a child...

perhaps a midget?

Did anyone ever find out how the UAE entrant did at the Gay Olympics? And what sport he/she was in?
